Kind Malaysia 2021 Celebrates The Spirit Of Kindness And Compassion
From economic uncertainties to the lack of physical interaction, there is no doubt that the pandemic has upended the lives of many. Amidst all the news of gloom and doom, however, Kind Malaysia 2021 seeks to highlight the importance of kindness and compassion in these times of adversity.
Kind Malaysia 2021 is a three-day virtual expo that will showcase the best of Malaysian kindness – from civil society programmes and corporate social responsibility initiatives to everyday Malaysians who are working towards the betterment of our communities. Since 2018, Kind Malaysia has served as a platform for like-minded individuals to connect with each other and share ideas that will inspire and promote a culture of kindness.
This year’s virtual event, themed “Time To Be Kind,” will run between September 7 to 9 from 10 am to 4 pm.
In addition to an exciting programme of insightful panels and talks, participants will also get the chance to stay on the pulse of the latest in humanitarian innovations and best current practices being employed by both civil society and the corporate sector. The scheduled panel discussions for the three days are “Humanity During Hard Times” and “Corporates’ Role During Crisis”. Amongst confirmed speakers includes Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye – Chairman of Ecoworld Bhd Foundation, Datuk Seri Wong Chun Wai – Advisor for Star Media Group, Mr Harith Iskander – Actor, Comedian and Founder of TheHope and Dato’ Teo Yen Hua – former CEO of National Water Services Commission (SPAN).
With ongoing travel restrictions during the pandemic, Kind Malaysia 2021 has designed a virtual experience that is aimed at encouraging dialogue among participants – all from the safety and convenience of their own homes. Aside from a lively online exhibition of non-profit initiatives, a virtual networking lounge will be set up as space for participants to link up and explore potential opportunities for collaborations.
Kind Malaysia 2021 is also offering complimentary exhibitor passes for selected organisations, including corporate foundations, non-governmental organisations, support groups, and welfare associations, to allow them to showcase their humanitarian programmes and innovations to a larger audience.
