Annoucement of First Event of BAYT, Bringing Asian Youths Together


Since the World Peace Forum in Vancouver this June, several UBC and Langara College students and staff members including myself have been talking about starting a project that brings together youths who are from Asian countries or who are interested in Asian issues for open dialogue to build mutual understanding and trust. After 5 months of preparation, our first event is finally happening! I am so proud of the intelligent and passionate youths from UBC and Langara College who have taken initiatives in incubating and launching this project. Anybody of all ages from any community is welcome at this event.

Here is the announcement.

**********************************************************************************

Bringing Asian Youth Together!!Interested in Asian international affairs? Want to learn more about it? Want to share your thoughts with friends from other countries? A new project, Bringing Asian Youths Together (BAYT) is initiated by UBC and Langara College students, in cooperation with the Asian Studies Students Association (ASIA, http://www.ams.ubc.ca/clubs/asia/). BAYT is pleased to invite you to our first event. The goal of the project is to promote open and impartial dialogue among Asian youths, such as those from China, Korea and Japan. By exchanging opinions, leaning from each other and obtaining deeper knowledge, we will together broaden perspectives of the issues affecting East Asia and deepen understandings at grass-roots level. We believe this will bring harmony to the East Asia.

Date: Friday, November 24th.
Time: 12:30-2pm.
Venue: Henry Angus 326, UBC (University of British Columbia)

Refreshments will be provided.

Our first event will include:- Introduction of BAYT and its team members
- Icebreaker
- Brainstorming topics to be brought up in future BAYT events
- Recruitment of students who want to join the planning team

We hope to see you there!!

*This event is sponsored by Peace Philosophy Centre.
