At LKPC, we are making our efforts to advocate the pressing need to have a research-intensive, high-technology, knowledge-based economy as a significant agenda of national development. But we cannot do it alone; we would like you to become our ambassadors and lead the discussion on the agenda of Pakistan as a Knowledge Economy and Lahore Knowledge Park as a cornerstone to this notion of economic development. Knowledge Ambassadors Program is an effective liaison between the students and Lahore Knowledge Park. Ambassadors will be engaged for a period of 12 weeks and will be asked to come up with task plans involving various activities to drive relevant discussion among their peers. Students will be selected as Knowledge Ambassadors against a certain evaluation criteria for each cohort and will be given the opportunity to work with the outreach and communication team of LKPC in order to raise awareness, drive advocacy campaigns on social media and to spur the discussions among their networks. On completion of the first cohort, Knowledge Ambassadors will be awarded with certificates of participation. The participants will also be contesting for Star Ambassador Award.
