Green Camp 3/2017
Green Camp as Nature Conservation Medium

There are Malay proverb says, 'Prevention it better than cure'. It is no doubt that any precautionary measures should be taken to preserve our environment so that it can be enjoyed by next generations.

Therefore, Penang Green Council in collaboration with the Hindu Hindu Sangam Bukit Bendera Council has organized another Green Camp this year. The camp also received supported from SJK (T) Jalan Sungai. This is the third Green Camp for this year and it was conducted in Tamil. A total of 50 participants between the ages of 9 to 12 years attended the camp.

The Green Camp organised by PGC is a program for kids to learn the basics of sustainability and their role towards environment in a short period of time. In conjunction with Waste Segregation at Source Policy by the Penang State Government, our Green Camp module mainly focuses on Waste Segregation at Source as well as water and energy conservation. During the Green Camp, besides gaining knowledge, participants also are given opportunities to make their own bag using paper and old clothes.

‘This educational and fun camp involving class and outdoor activities, aims to cultivate an understanding of man’s interdependence with the environment. We want the kids to have the awareness and appreciate the natural environment’ said Ms Renuka Radakrishnan, Programme and Project Executive from Penang Green Council.
