Editorial Issue 73

Our Lift issue number 73 will bring you new and different ideas for the benefit of the Kingdom of Cambodia. The first story is about what’s new that young people are starting to promote by creating something of interest and value for others. Read about a group of young Cambodian filmmakers who show their talent and perspective to the public through film.

When the fighting between the Cambodians and the Thais at the Preah Vihear border ended, both sides organised a peace walk at the border to build friendships and reduce hostilities.

Included in the peace walk were people from NGOs, Buddhist disciples and others in a touching display of solidarity at the end of the fighting. This our main feature story of this issue.

While some people are more concerned about peace along the border, others are worried about their weight and found that the peace walk was also a way to make their bodies slim and sexy. The second feature story will share with you the techniques of losing weight and the impact of using these techniques.

Although young people are concerned about peace and health, they are also thinking about their environment. Since the climate changed almost everywhere in the world – including devastating earthquakes and the tsunami in Japan as well as a volcano eruption in Iceland – people are more and more concerned about the environment and more and more interested in finding ways to protect themselves. In our “Youth of the Week” column, Ngor Menghuong shows us the concerns coming from IFL’s student group and their actions to clean up the environment and share their experience with others.

Coming up in the near future, we will have a special column for students who want to say they are ready to find a job or share their opinions in terms of developing education and careers in the Kingdom.  If you’d like to do that,  please send us your information via this address: [email protected] Enjoy reading our work.
