It takes more than just courage to speak on behalf of the public. The public’s wishes and agonies are crucial bits in creating the policies that govern society. Being the children of civilisation, the illustration of the desperation of people differs from one context to another. More importantly, civilisation teaches us to channel our thoughts and sentiments to legal and recognized avenues in the quest of penetrating the correct answers. Here’s where all these elements are combined perfectly for the benefits of the masses - public policy debates.
Some people may think that debate is just an activity where a talkative bunch tries very hard to sound smart. They may be right. But underneath it all, the ability to express opinions and engage in intellectual discussions can spark more ideas. These ideas later on shape the minds of the society and impact on the norms that guide lifestyles. This is the point where governments all around the world acknowledge the existence of these ideas and appreciate the values that they carry in the hearts of the society. Hence, changes can be made vis-à-vis constructive debate sessions in a productive and healthy environment. The Malaysia Public Policy Competition is a platform where we believe we can achieve a collective goal. Realizing the importance of public policies and the place it holds in the hearts of the people, we have to embrace this effort to materialize the suggestions that young minds have to offer. Critical and analytical thinking helps society to become more mature. This could be the future of tomorrow and the leaders for the years to come. And we want nothing more, than to be a part of this big and historic event.
