BACKGROUND

The objective of the lecture series is to provide an opportunity for the youth to discuss and talk about unity in an open manner in a conducive environment.  The issue of unity is interlinked with many other issues such as equality, culture background, history, education, development policy, economic policy etc.  With massive information available, it is important to provide a platform for the youth to discuss their concerns, ideas and perspectives on issue relating to UNITY.

In Sarawak, the issue of unity per se is a showcase for Malayisa.  Many applaud Sarawak for their achievement in this aspect especially in maintaining the harmony and understanding among the different ethnic groups.

However, due to influence and information available on the web, the youth might not be able to understand the importance of Sarawak’s uniqueness in maintaining the unity among the people.  Therefore, it is important for the youth to hear from the older generation on what build and leads to modern Sarawak and the social environment that we enjoyed in the present day.

It is hope that through this Unity Lecture Series, we are able to bridge the gap between the young and the old generation of Sarawak in understanding the importance of unity among the ethnic groups.
