There’s room for improvement especially for students as they are youth who will be future leaders in Brunei Darussalam leading the nation in global issues. These were among the issues discussed in the 18th International School Brunei Borneo Global Issues Conference (ISB BGIC).
“When the students gather, they not only need to know the issues but also how to address them as it is not just about awareness. Brunei LNG Sdn Bhd’s (Brunei LNG) sponsorship advocates advancing towards the Sultanate’s goals together through a whole-of-nation approach,” said Brunei LNG Production Manager Ellynah binti Abdul Rahman at the ISB BGIC press conference yesterday.
The ISB BGIC which sees a participation of 330 delegates from 21 schools from Brunei is hosted by the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) and ISB from yesterday to June 27. The opening ceremony will be held today at the International Convention Centre (ICC) as part of Brunei Mid-Year Conference and Exhibition 2022 (Brunei MYCE 2022).
The press conference yesterday introduced keynote speakers – Gleneagles JPMC Sdn Bhd Chief Executive Officer Dr Peter Tay and The Impian Project founder Lailatul Zubaidah binti Hussain. Representatives from sponsors – Ellynah from Brunei LNG and Business Development Manager Albert Hwong from Dynamik Technologies Sdn Bhd – were also present at the press conference. ISB Executive Principal Tony Macfadyen, ISB BGIC teacher-in-charge Merill Grant and ISB BGIC Secretary-General Rafferty Grant-Perry were also in attendance.
This year’s ISB BGIC focusses on the 3rd Sustainable Development Goal (SDG3) – Good Health and Well-Being.
