The Ministry of Youth and Sports of the Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh organized a press briefing session in order to inaugurate the “OIC Knowledge Master” competition, which is one of the key programs of the mega event- Dhaka OIC Youth Capital 2020.
One of the main difficulties the youth face nowadays is making right decisions fast. Being able to make the right decisions fast could save them a lot of time which they could use in shaping the decisions better afterwards. To break this stiffness and help the youth making most of their time during this COVID-19 pandemic, “OIC Knowledge Master” quiz competition is going to be organized in participation with the youth of the OIC Member States and representatives from the Muslim communities of the non-OIC Member States. This competition will also help to address our Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s call to engage youths with decision-making, ideas and innovations to build a resilient and sustainable future for all.
This year’s celebrations come at a time when the whole world is fighting one common enemy, the COVID-19 pandemic where youths have been the most affected in this crisis situation as they are the most active stakeholders in the society in terms of productivity, mobility and interaction, so this COVID-19 crisis is disruptive in terms of their lifestyle and prospects for their future. With most educational institutions being closed and with restrictions on travel, physical activity, and mass gatherings, postponement of events etc., the impact of COVID-19 has had major implications for all youths, especially the students. These implications can have commensurate psychological consequences. To help the students deal with these challenges as well as to polish up their Critical Thinking skill and help them develop a healthy and competitive mind, “OIC Knowledge Master” quiz competition will completely take place online to connect the youths from all over the world.
The “OIC Knowledge Master” quiz competition is going to be held online by organizing the youth of the world to meet the challenges of the ongoing Covid-19 as well as to acquire their constructive thinking and skills and help them develop a healthy and competitive mindset.
Dhaka OIC Youth Capital 2020 believes that every new life brings a possibility and a promise. Therefore, as part of the Dhaka OIC Youth Capital 2020 Mega Event, the “OIC Knowledge Master” will showcase the knowledge and skills of the youth as well as inspire them to connect with the youth of other countries of the world and build a vibrant and sustainable future for all.
