International Youth Conference
As Nights follows the Day, the natural order the universe dictates the Young will inherit the Earth from the Old. The question therefore is not if the Youth will assume the leadership from the Old Guard, but once having assumed the leadership role, how well will the youth performance in the leadership role – Will it maintain the High Standard of Stewardship after the baton changes or will it be a disappointing new order of things?
This is true in all human affairs and there is a huge responsibility caste on the current leadership in any organization/community to ensure the new generation is ready and willing to take this responsibility. Hence Succession Planning is assuming an increasing importance in all spheres of human activities as is evident in Political, Commercial and Social Organizations around the globe
The Senior Leadership of the WMO having recognized the importance of Role of the Youth in the Development of WMO and ensure the future prosperity of the organization/community has initiated 2 activities to get greater participation of the Community Youth into the WMO Family
1. Memon Premier League T20 Cricket Tournament
2. International Youth Conference
The International Youth Conference is scheduled to be held on 21st Feb 2013 from 9.30AM to 5.30PM at Hotel Galadari, Colombo Sri Lanka alongside the MPL. The WMO International Youth Conference aims to bring Youth from all 6 active Chapters under One Roof for sharing of ideas, building networks and becoming active contributors and stakeholders in WMO. The Aim of this initiative is to get new blood into the Organization and make WMO a more inclusive organization with opportunities for Youth and Women in the community to make a contribution and a difference.
An absorbing and fun filled day has been planned with a Surprised Guest Speaker to Motivate and Encourage the Youth to take centre stage. At the end of the day, the participants will be given an opportunity to make a presentation to the Exco of the WMO on their proposed projects to take the WMO forward and how the Youth can make a contribution towards this
The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Said
The Son of Adam will not pass away from Allah until he is asked about 5 things
1. How he lived is Life
2. How he utilized his Youth
3. With what means did he earn his wealth
4. How did he spend his Money
5. What did he do with his knowledge
