OUR VALUE

Our Value A well known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20 bill. In the room of 200, he asked, “Who would like this $20 bill?” Hands started going up. He said, “I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.” He proceeded to crumple the dollar bill up. He then asked, “Who still wants it?” Still the hands were up in the air. “Well,” he replied, “What if I do this?” And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now all crumpled and dirty. “Now who still wants it?” Still the hands went into the air. “My friends, you have all learned a very valuable lesson. No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value. It was still worth $20.

He said Cambodia has prioritised science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education while also addressing the challenge of adapting its teachers, who have been trained in traditional rote-learning, to focus on encouraging critical thinking. They need new thinkers to support the individual development programme (IDP) and ensure the country’s industrial development will be guided in a way that diversifies Cambodia’s economic base and renders it more competitive and productive. Mr Many said “young people are able to understand young people”, but if you are in a position of leadership you need a good understanding of all generations....

“STAND TALL”

STAND TALL Mr Many said “young people are able to understand young people”, but if you are in a position of leadership you need a good understanding of all generations. “At the end of the day, you don’t serve only young people. If you are in a position of leadership, you need to serve the whole country and society at large,” he said. “When we are young, we tend not to live in the past. But we should not forget who we are and what makes us this way today,” “All pillars are important … it is the responsibility of young people as a whole to move the country forward,” he...
