Two Eco-Schools students took part in Sembang@WWF, a bilingual story-telling platform that empowers youths and students to share their ideas on environmental sustainability activities with a larger audience.
They studied relevant current issues, and had to undergo numerous rehearsals and tests before sharing their presentations with the audience. The content of their presentations has been guided and verified by WWF-Malaysia in-house Experts.
WWF-Malaysia's Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Programme hosted the second edition of Sembang@WWF 2016 in conjunction with the Earth Day on 23 April 2016.
Ng Yong Zheng, who represented the Eco-Schools Progamme of WWF-Malaysia, emphasised the need to address climate change through his talk, 'We Are Living in South Haze Asia'. He shared his views on the impact of haze from the perspective of a 17-year old student.
"We cannot depend on environmental NGOs only to overcome polution. It is everyone’s responsibility if all of us want clean air to breathe.
We must ensure corporations, big or small, embassies and governmental agencies to work together with the people to ensure this problem can be solved"
In showing their commitment to WWF-Malaysia’s 'My Fin My Life' campaign, Khou Jerome and Nurul Syazwani Mohammad Zikri, both representatives from Eco-Institutes Programme, and Jessadine Rose Baluyot, from the Eco-Schools Programme, took the challenge to call people to stop shark finning and shark fin soup consumption.
