Calling all Damansara Jaya’s youth!

A collaboration between MBPJ Zone 5 Local Councillor Teh Chi-Chang and UndiMsia! will be bringing you #IdolaDemokrasi 52: Petaling Jaya.

Unhappy with how things are in Malaysia?  Want to do something but don’t know where to start?

The merry minions from UndiMsia! are bringing their #IdolaDemokrasi gameshop to Damansara Jaya this Saturday, 9 Nov 2013.

In the IdolaDemokrasi gameshop, participants first learn how to define the problem. Is the problem really the problem? Or is the so-called problem actually a symptom of an underlying issue? Get to the root! Defining the problem requires interaction, discussion and debate. No “Listen! Listen! Listen” in the gameshops  Participants acquire the skill of voicing opinions clearly and effectively.

But voicing your opinion is not enough. That’s just mere talk. In a democracy, majority rules. So, the next step is consensus building. How do you build a critical mass of support to translate your opinions into action? How are policies actually made in Malaysia? How can you influence that process? Come to #IdolaDemokrasi 52: Petaling Jaya! to discover how to create and execute a detailed action plan to solve an issue.

Your very own YB Yeo Bee Yin; Member of Selangor State Assembly for Damansara Utama will be making an appearance too!

Be the CHANGE you want to see in Malaysia! Fun games, effective outcomes and cool prizes all at:
