- Ministry of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment and Climate Change (MESTECC) has appointed Yayasan Hijau Malaysia (YHM) to be an implementing agency for the National Science Week Year 2019 (MSN) for Kedah state.
Led by Yayasan Hijau Malaysia (YaHijau) in collaboration with Green Guardian, the Green Guardian project aims to educate children aged 5 to 12 years about the importance of embracing green practices towards a sustainable future.
The Karnival Inovasi Teknologi Hijau programme is an annual event organized as a collaboration between the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water (KeTTHA), YaHijau, the Ministry of Education Malaysia (KPM) and the Centre for Education, Training & Research in Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (CETREE).
YaHijau is dedicated to supporting the Government’s objective to increase the amount of green spaces in Kuala Lumpur by 2020. This will be achieved via our Tree Planting and Parks Adoption programme which aims to promote green redevelopment, increase green density and encourage usage of parks. This initiative will also involve the respective local councils in the Greater Kuala Lumpur area.
The Green Technology Themed Science Camps Program focuses on the transfer and exposure of knowledge for students to learn the science subject with Green Technology elements through camping and hands-on activities. In turn, this creates meaningful and authentic learning experiences for the students involved.
A joint programme between Yayasan Hijau Malaysia, Centre for Education and Training for Renewable Energy, Energy Efficiency and Green Technology (CETREE & GT), the Green Audit Programme Application was developed to assist Teachers in auditing the sustainability level of their schools. Following the steps of Singapore, India, Abu Dhabi, Ireland and the U.S. where a majority of their schools have applied the green audit concept, this programme was initiated in Malaysia in order for schools to evaluate and certify their sustainability levels.
In 2015, YaHijau initiated its first Karnival Yahijau series in Johor, Kedah and Pahang with more than 13,000 attendees, including local communities, youths, students and educational institutions, government agencies, key industry players and tourists. In collaboration with the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology & Water (KeTTHA) and the local state governments, the carnivals focus on efforts to promote and enhance the understanding and appreciation of interest in green lifestyle practices and green technology applications as well as promoting the importance green technology amongst the people, especially at the grassroots level.
