Live stream from the Kandy conference. There may not always be something on.
While we’re debating in the blogosphere, Sri Lanka Unites is actively doing something about reconciliation. They’ve brought youth leaders from all over the island to Kandy for what I think is the third Future Leaders Conference, supporting the champions of positive, uniting change.
Real change can be supported from abroad, from India, from the West, from China, wherever. Ultimately, however, it has to come from here. Sri Lanka Unites is supporting the next generation of Sri Lankans, and it is they who will make an inclusive nation real.
To quote Sugathadasa de Silva, bus conductor 154 route, Dematagoda:
“Change can not be given to you every time. You must bring the change”
