For this year’s Youth Leadership Parliament, we plan to have two social events: a cultural night and a surprise event — scheduled for the first and second day of the conference respectively. Both these events have been planned to keep it a more interactive environment.
The Panel Talks are a platform through which YLP aims to bring political and social discourses and the pressing issues surrounding these, to the forefront of debate. Guests from different walks of life interact with the students and discuss pertinent issues prevailing globally and domestically. Here, the attendees are provided an opportunity to learn from the experiences of pioneering journalists, politicians, dignitaries, and many more such eminent personalities. Moreover, through these panel talks, they are encouraged to analyze the issues that affect their communities critically.
This year, the team has planned an exhilarating panel talk with prominent political figures in Pakistan discussing the means to a possible end of human rights infringements, a round table conference of all affiliated NGOs which aim towards a brighter and better Pakistan. This will allow delegates to converse with distinguished guests from different walks of life, adding to their overall YLP’21 experience.
