Title: Lead Facilitator & Co Founder
Bio:
I believe environmental quality is reflected by social equity, in developing country like Malaysia many dismiss the cost of convenience and over look the value of community. As a social enterprise conducting workshops on environmentally sustainable behaviors and environmental education, we realized it is important to engage the community through hands on experiential activities which empower behavioral change. Through our workshops and projects we aspire to create aha moments for individuals to understand "everything is connected", ethical consumption and the power of collaborations. We strongly believe that community co creation is the way forward in developing ownership and environmental empathy.
