The programme aims to nurture youths to become environment champions by enhancing students’ understanding of environmental issues and nurturing their skills in project development. The creation of prototypes and execution of campaigns help Kepalas better appreciate and care for their lived environment, thereby encouraging environmental responsibility and ownership.
There are 12 tertiary-level schools on board the programme, with more than 3,000 youth volunteers having engaged 18,000 participants in the community on various environmental topics such as zero waste, food waste reduction, energy efficiency and reducing plastic disposables.
