The Centre For A Better Tomorrow (CENBET) recently held its inaugural students' engagement programme. Conducted in Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia's campus in Bangi, a group of student leaders from various courses and backgrounds were invited to hold discussions with CENBET office-bearers on moderation and good governance.
CENBET's Co-Presidents Lim Chee Wee and Gan Ping Sieu were among those from the civil society group who shared their views on the importance of moderation and good governance during the informal dinner. Among others, Lim shared his experience battling graft in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) while Gan challenged the students to reach out to students of other races while in university.
The students also expressed their grievances and shared their views on moderation and good governance.
The event was the first in the series of students' engagement that CENBET will be conducting. The aim is to drill into varsity students the importance of moderation and good governance and the practical application of these values in their daily lives.
The feedback from such talks would eventually be used for a proposed mentorship programme and a leadership seminar.
