A Renewable Energy Professional, Syaqil was introduced to the Malaysian Youth Delegation in 2017, through MYD’s sister organisation, Powershift Malaysia. With MYD, he’s had the opportunity to attend the annual UN Climate Change Conferences in 2017 and 2018, as well as the 2019 Asia Pacific Climate Week in Bangkok. He believes that it is important for youth to be part of an inclusive policy-making process. Ultimately, it is young and future generations who will be facing the full effects of the climate crisis.
During his free time, Syaqil enjoys sports in general and makes time for the occasional hike. He is also a feline-lover with two dorky cats at home, Timo and Awang. He is one half of MYD 2020’s Focal Points.
