YES2009 – The Trip!
How often can you get the co-founder of Twitter, the founder of Live8, a Bollywood star and a plane crash survivor under one roof?
The Youth Engagement Summit 2009 will be held for the first time right here in Malaysia. We’re giving you a chance to join Biz Stone, Sir Bob Geldof, Amitabh Bachchan, Nando Parrado and many more for two amazing days.
On top of that, we’re giving you a free trip – and an experience which may change your life.
DAY 1, Evening – Touchdown @ LCC-T, Sepang
YOUR DESTINATION: MALAYSIA
You and all the winners from your country will board the plane together… destination? A colorful multi-racial country, snugged comfortably between Thailand and Singapore. From the moment you get off the AirAsia plane, your adventure begins. The sun shines high in the sky and it’s just a little warm, but think about it — you’re representing your country to a historic event!
You’ll be checked into a hotel right in the heart of Kuala Lumpur (or how we locals like to call it ‘KL’). You’ll be joining the rest of the winners, too! 500 Youths from around Southeast Asia, representing their countries!
Mingle with them. Make friends. They want to make a change in their personal lives, their communities, and their country. Who knows where the new friendships may lead?
DAY 1, Night – Kuala Lumpur
YOUR DINNER: ANYTHING, EVERYTHING

You and your new group of friends will be picking where you eat. We’ll walk you through Chinatown so you can handpick your dinner according to your tastebuds!
DAY 2, Morning – YES2009, Day 1
YOUTH ENGAGEMENT SUMMIT 2009 – DAY ONE
After a Malaysian breakfast, a bus will take your troupe to the Youth Engagement Summit at Putrajaya International Convention Center.

On the first day of the summit, Biz Stone (the co-founder of Twitter), Sir Bob Geldof (Founder of Live8), Dr. Mamphela Ramphele (Former MD of World Bank and Vice Chancellor of Cape Town University) and Amitabh Bachchan (Bollywood icon) will be rocking the stage, making it an exciting opening first day for the 2-day summit.
DAY 2, Night – The sun may set, but the night lives on…
The day doesn’t end when the summit ends for the day. KL houses the best night spots in Malaysia — good food and good company. Explore the city with your new friends. From chill-out lounges to live performances, if you still have energy left, hit the hawker stalls for another meal ~ the best supper of your life.
Our guides will be there to bring you out, and assure you’ll have a blast.
DAY 3, Morning – YES2009, Day 2
YOUTH ENGAGEMENT SUMMIT – DAY TWO

Garry Kasparov (World Chess Champion), Randi Zuckerberg (Marketing Director of Facebook), Tony Fernandes (AirAsia CEO) and Nando Parrado (Andes crash survivor) will be seeing you on the second day of the summit. It’s definitely going to end with a bang.
DAY 3, Evening – More of the city
Before packing up to leave in the morning, you’ll have one more night to spend with your new friends — more sightseeing, taste more food and time to soak in all that has happened, and plan your next adventure with the country representatives you’re now intimate with.
“WHAT DO I GET FROM THIS TRIP?”
By the end of the trip, you’ve already been exposed to the many cultures and lifestyle Malaysia has to offer, and of course, met the most amazing bunch of people — and we’re not referring to just the speakers in the summit :)
You’ll be excited, inspired and maybe even cry a little.
HOW TO WIN
We’re giving 500 Southeast Asian youths an opportunity to be inspired, meet people and experience Malaysia in all its glory. Why are you still there reading this? Head over to http://youthsays.com/seachange for the next step!
