'YOUTH LEADERSHIP FOR A UNITED COUNTRY'
As the next generation moves into leadership, we, the youth of Sri Lanka hold the future of our country in our hands. In this critical period of transition for the country, we have the opportunity to replace a culture of divisiveness and conflict and be a voice for change; for hope and reconciliation. The Sri Lanka Unites movement represents this choice of our nation’s youth, from ethnic and religious groups, from across the country, to rise up and provide a new voice.
The Future Leaders' Conference is the flagship event of our movement. This event brings together the top student leaders from across the country for a five day residential conference. The theme of the conference is leadership and reconciliation. The conference bridges that gap and help student leaders meet their peers from other parts of the island. The process of integration is then propelled through identifying challenges for the next generation . This is followed by inspiring them to resolve issues as Sri Lankans and not as segregated fractions. Students are able to question the prejudices they had inherited about one another start engaging in ways of being part of the solutions for lingering challenges in Sri Lankan.
