INTRODUCTION

The Ministry of Youth and Sports, Malaysia in collaboration with the SSEAYP International Malaysia (KABESA) will be organising the Malaysian International Youth Programme with the theme "Crime Free Generation" on 12 – 17 May, 2009 in Kuala Lumpur. It is in conjunction with the 41st National Youth Day, in Malaysia.

The programme is organised to foster the development of values and attitudes such as responsibility, and also enhance teaching and learning of other value-orientated studies such as life education, effective education, and environmental education, where the information, conclusions or recommendations are to be shared among the member countries.

It is hoped that this programme will promote good spirit amongst the youth to create a "Culture of Safety" in the neighbourhoods, build partnerships among police force, nonprofits organisation, and city and community leaders. It is also to have better understanding to the threat posed by any forms of crime. Details of the programme and the registration forms are attached.

The main objective of this programme is to allow youth leaders to meet, discuss and ascertain solutions to any forms of crime as well as allowing them to identify real issues on the ground. This will allow the youth to have their voices heard by global decision makers in promoting a crime free generation, thus contributing towards achieving global peace, stability and harmony, and provide an opportunity for the participants to strengthen cooperation and enhance networking amongst them.

The programme will be an excellent platform in allowing the voices of youth against crime to be heard and given due recognition by the international and regional bodies as well as national authorities.
