The Brunei Young Leaders Convention (BYLC) is a platform for youths in Brunei Darussalam to gather, ranging from 18 to 40 years old, together with its stakeholders.
It is to mobilize youth to have a sense of belonging and to play an active role in achieving Brunei’s Vision 2035.
The motto for BYLC 2021 is B.E.L.I.A (Believe, Empower, Lead, Inspire, Act) which is a paradigm shift and a call to youths in Brunei Darussalam to have these five aspects in supporting Brunei’s Vision 2035.
Believe is a trait to believe the ability of our young people to play a role in nation building to achieve Brunei’s Vision 2035.
Empower is the support given to youths in becoming leaders with guidance and constructive advice.
Lead means being able to lead and it is a trait that must be present in youths to make positive changes in achieving desired goals.
Inspire is the continuation of the existing leaders to support the younger generation with their experience and engagement, to encourage leadership sustainability.
Act is intended for the youths to work on programs that correlate with the desire to accomplish Brunei’s Vision 2035 goals.
BYLC 2021 will be held at the National Service Programme (PKBN) Building in Temburong District. The venue is located just a few minutes' drive from Pekan Bangar. This will be a great opportunity for the participant to experience the "Green Jewel of Brunei".
