With aims of honing leadership skills and creating an environmentally conscious generation, Sri Aman Environmental & English Youth Leadership Summit held an international competition last August 4-5, 2020. Participating schools for this year’s summit included delegates from Thailand, Indonesia, and the Philippines.
The goal of SAEYLS is to unearth, hone and develop the leadership skills and abilities of the youth and to enable them to lead the global community of tomorrow to be highly environmental-conscious as well as embrace environmental-friendly lifestyles. They believe that as leaders of tomorrow, the youth can definitely bring about this significant change in the mindset of the global community, and ultimately, improve the quality of life.
Kendra Osias, a delegate from Philippine Science High School – Eastern Visayas Campus, pointed out that the event was very educational, fun, and interesting.
“It was fun! A little pressure, yeah, because it was an international competition, but mostly fun! It was also super educational and interesting because there were so many different cultures that led to different writing styles, topics, etc. I also had fun writing poetry again, because it’s something I haven’t done in a while.”
