Thirty alumni attend our first Conference in Yangon
From all over Myanmar thirty young men and women arrived in Yangon in September for the first UnionAID Myanmar Young Leaders Programme alumni conference.
The purpose of the conference was to provide ongoing learning, support and networking opportunities for the programme alumni.
The three days included oral and poster presentations by fifteen students about their work, who made strong links to their time in New Zealand.
There were workshops on sustainable development by two local economists and a full day workshop by Igor Blaževič on the choices for a democratic and federal state.
Ross Wilson, UnionAID Chair, ran a Rule of Law workshop with Kyi Kyi Linn, an experienced rule of law trainer.
Survey feedback from the conference was overwhelmingly positive with all respondents saying they hope to attend again next year.
