This article is from Matt explaining about his trip to Bangkok on 28th to 30th November. He has been invited to be part of the "Peace Summit for Emerging Leaders" at the UN in Bangkok. President Howard Mole, presented Matt with a cheque for $300 to help with his expenses.

I am delighted to share with you that I have recently been invited and accepted to be a delegate at the Peace Summit of Emerging Leaders, at the UN in Bangkok this month (28-30 November). 
 
In short, this is an exciting opportunity that will bring together 500 emerging world leaders (aged 17-35) from across the globe, to discuss how we can achieve sustainable peace - something we both know is core to the purpose and mission of Rotary. As you could imagine, I’m incredibly excited about heading along to this initiative. 
 
As well as attendance at the Summit, we are tasked to be Humanitarian Affairs Peace Ambassadors for the next 12 months. Therefore, upon my return I would love to do something within District 9670 to promote peace to young people. I have already offered to my club and to Waratah to speak about my experiences - if they can fit it within their club programs
 
"I am more than happy to speak at clubs across the District and beyond, about my experiences at the Summit & in my capacity as a young Rotarian and Humanitarian Affairs Peace Ambassador (for 2019). I have extensive  public  speaking experience and I am passionate to be an inspiration as a Peace Ambassador..
 
This is also a great opportunity to connect with youth and young people in our communities, exposing them to the great work of Rotary and the many possibilities that could see their involvement"
 
Shalom,
