PUTRAJAYA: The Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry (KeTTHA) will implement the green technology syllabus in the Secondary School Standard Curriculum (KSSM) by the year 2020 in a bid to create awareness and inculcate the culture of green lifestyle among students in the country.
Minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili said KeTTHA, through the Yayasan Hijau Malaysia (YaHijau) would collaborate with Universiti Sains Malaysia Centre For Education, Training and Research in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CETREE) and the Education Ministry to review the curriculum and subjects related to the use of green technology.
He said the green technology syllabus would most probably be inserted in subjects such as Science, Chemistry, Biology and Physics.
"This is expected to be implemented fully in 2020. I have discussed with Minister of Education Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid so that the first roll-out could be done next year to train the teachers involved," he told reporters after attending the ministry's Christmas and New Year celebration here today.
Also present were acting KeTTHA Deputy Minister Datuk Seri S. K Devamany and secretary-general Datuk Seri Dr Zaini Ujang. — Bernama
