ISLAMABAD - Shabash Pakistan - a nationwide campaign aimed to reawaken the patriotism and nationalism - kicked off here on Sunday under the auspicious of School of Leadership.
In this regard, a group of 250 students of National University of Science and Technology (NUST) has taken part a ceremony held here at NUST School of Civil and Environmental Engineering auditorium and pledged for saving their motherland by becoming ambassadors of peace. Shabash Pakistan is a nation branding movement started by the School of Leadership. The programme is also aimed to help students manoeuvre their strength to the path of creating a positive image of Pakistan in the international arena.
Shabash Pakistan is a series of three one-day sessions in four universities, which will be divided over three months. The target audience is the undergraduate and graduate students. School of Leadership did it in a different way. The methods were unlike the conventional educational and personality building methods. The young blood was taught in an interactive and participative manner, which is actually role-playing in itself.
The main objective is making the Pakistani young blood more loyal to the brand that is called “Pakistan” and to make them feel proud as “Pakistanis.” School of Leadership is known for being pioneers of the training industry in Pakistan.
They claim to provide a platform for individuals to discover and utilise their unquestionable ability to elevate their lives through conscious endeavor.
The trainer, Umair Jaliawala conducted the session in quite an interesting manner. The event kicked off with the national anthem, keeping with the topic of Shabash Pakistan. The theme of the session was Main (me).
It was basically about what an individual can do to bring a change in the society, by taking personal responsibility. A number of interactive exercises and activities made the concept not only transparent but also rational.
Umair said that it was high time the youth started taking action about the things they do not like happening, because if one is being affected negatively by a particular situation, it should be he to be the first one to take action to change it for himself instead of waiting for others to come and save the day.
The session ended with an action planning, which was in fact an individual answer from each participant to the question: “What will I personally do to bring positive change?”
