INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE

PCORE                                                         YAYASAN 1MALAYSIA

            INTERCULTURAL DIALOGUE

             Towards Greater Awareness:

Community Identity & National Identity

       Date: Wednesday 1 February 2012

                       Time: 9.00 – 4pm

     Venue: Institut Integriti Malaysia

 

Introduction

Implicit in the concept of national unity is the belief that there is a common path – one that holds shared values and aspirations among people of diverse socio-cultural orientations. The journey towards unity and its twin concept of peace is best undertaken when people accept one another’s differences and strive to define their common goals as a nation.

Building a national identity must necessarily be seen as the process of consolidating our multiple identities as individuals and as members of the groups we belong to – be they ethnic, community, religious, professional or political. What better way to forge greater understanding than to engage one another in open and honest ways, with empathy and compassion?

While fulfilling our roles and responsibilities within our own communities, we are contributing to the nation in constructive and resourceful ways. While we are proud to uphold our cultural and religious values and traditions, we stand tall in upholding the honour and integrity of our national identity.

We are secure in our identity as Malays, Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Kadazans, Dayaks and Eurasians etc, as followers of Islam, Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and the Baha’i Faith etc,  just  as there is solidarity in our identity as Malaysians! 

 

Objectives

  • to promote an open and honest sharing of intercultural experiences
  • to share knowledge and information about our ethnicity, culture and religion
  • to define the binding elements in the national vision and Malaysian identity
  • to explore the idea of a national identity index

    I am comfortable with all these titles. But I am of the view that all these awarding of titles has gone horribly wrong because they are awarded to people, those in public service, at the time they are appointed to their positions instead of being given when they successfully complete their assignments. This will make the titles more valuable.

    There is also an urgent need to remove the perception that these titles are a prize that does not have a price..
