Bangladesh Telenor Youth Forum winners to attend Nobel Peace Prize ceremony
The Bangladeshi representatives of Telenor Youth Forum 2017 will attend the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in Oslo, Norway in December. Myat Moe Khaing, an undergraduate student of Institute of Business Administration (IBA), University of Dhaka, and Rakib Rahman, a student of EEE at Dhaka University, were selected in September based on their innovative ideas to bring about social change. Telenor Youth Forum is partners with the Nobel Peace Centre, which promotes the theme “Digitalisation for Peace.” Myat Moe's idea is to develop platform Mukti which will help users consider which routes to take when travelling in Dhaka. The app will integrate Google Maps and informs users about traffic and road safety so that they can plan the way to their destination. The platform will also have a website and a hotline which will especially cater to poor women. Rakib’s idea “Make Them Strong” involves providing free education globally via multimedia content. It involves volunteers preparing multimedia educational content and sending it to refugee campaigns for mass distribution, free of cost. Rakib is currently looking for investors to implement his idea. The two innovators will attend the ceremony with the representatives of 12 other countries where the global event of Telenor Youth Forum takes place. The Nobel Peace Prize ceremony will take place on December 10 in Oslo, Norway.
