Fourth Malaysian Student Leaders Summit (MSLS 2010)
Our Malaysia, Charting the Way Forward

This summit, now in its fourth year, will serve as an avenue for intellectual and productive dialogue between Malaysian student leaders and prominent national figures from myriad fields. Through MSLS, it is hoped that participants will develop a better understanding of the issues facing our nation, and hence be better prepared to undertake the unique challenges that lie ahead in charting the way forward for Malaysia.

With new challenges and issues facing the nation every day, it is time that the youth had their say. What of the New Economic Model? What of corruption? What of the marginalized in society? These are but a few questions that will be debated during the MSLS. And these are questions that will be debate over and over again throughout the years. The answers may be non-existent, and indeed we may leave the summit with more questions than answers. But the very discussion of these issues brings it to the forefront of public debate, and enlightenment leads to advancement of our society as a whole. We must come together, and we must let our opinions be known.

After all, this is our Malaysia. We want to be a part of its development. We want our voices and aspirations to be heard. We want to chart the way forward. And we will.

Four types of presentation methods would be adopted during the summit: Forums, Presentations, Speeches and Group Discussions. Most sessions will be followed by a Q&A session.
