Through TN50, the government seeks to better understand the hopes and aspirations of the younger generation towards shaping Malaysia in the future. The initiative takes the form of dialogues and discourse events, where youths speak and the minister listens.

The group will be moderated by Nadine Smith, Global Marketing and Communications Director for the Centre for Public Impact. Her work focuses on helping governments around the world to design and implement more impactful initiatives. “We want to have a conversation with leading officials on how to engage citizens and ensure continued legitimacy and trust,” she said.

“Around the world, we have seen institutions affected by the frustration and dissatisfaction of citizens who don’t feel listened to,” Smith added. “We want to help change this, and will be setting out some options for how this might be achieved at this session.”
