WKM Youth Ambassadors

Basic Theme

COVID-19 has changed the world. Over 200 countries and territories have registered corona cases, and the entire world is buzzing with uncertainty and fear. No doubt, there are devastating effects of the virus on both individual and collective economies along with increasing physical and mental impacts of the pandemic on the vast majority of the world population.

Having said this, there are certain advantages of the pandemic which have never been seen in the recent past eg : On the environment and on individual reflections on life’s purpose among others. The paradox is on one hand the coronavirus is a threat to the entire world and on the other hand it represents a unifying force.

The World Kindness Movement (WKM) joins other visionaries in helping make the pandemic a source of human unity and plans to develop youth Kindness Ambassadors in directing world youth towards peace, environmental conservation and kindness.

The plan:

1. The National Kindness Peak Representative body of the World Kindness Movement will select two National Youth Ambassadors from their nationwide educational institutes and or workplaces and invite them to the regional forums and meetings to be arranged from time to time.

2. They will firstly join the next online meeting of the WKM- Region of Bangladesh, Pakistan, Malaysia , Sri Lanka and India and form a regional youth forum whose aim is help WKM in its mission of spreading Kindness among youth in their own countries and in the world at large. This will be held in the first week of July 2020.

3. The WKM national Youth Leaders will brainstorm 3 core issues each causing unkind and aggressive attitudes in their specific society and will suggest ways to address those and share at the next joint meeting of Youth Ambassadors by around mid July 2020.

4. The National Youth Ambassadors with their National Peak body head will look to further form teams - where each country is free to look at country specific projects.
