To raise awareness about the importance of climate change and cultivating the culture of caring towards our environment.
In conjunction with World Environmental Day, JCI Mines, Malaysia collaborated with local authority and local community to organize a Tree Planting Event. The team was joined by the community living around the residential area to plant hundreds of trees in order to support the biodiversity of the area for many future generations to enjoy. This event was officiated by YB Elizabeth Wong who is the Bukit Lanjan assemblywoman and Selangor executive council member in charge of tourism, consumer affairs, and environment.
Upon the completion of this tree planting events, we are able to achieve the following outcomes:
1. Successfully gather most of the local community’s residents to come together to preserve mother nature.
2. Conducted drawing competition for the kids with the theme relevant to environments.
3. Tree planting event to beautify the nearby garden.
The recommendations for improvement will be to collaborate with other JCI chapters in order to increase the number of participants and to intensify the entire project.
