As a part of Project VOCAL’s aim to empower youth in climate advocacy and policy, the committee has tasked the participating VOCALists to prepare an infographic detailing a concrete community climate action plan.
Check out some of the winning infographics they have come up with below!
” The pandemic showed us the importance for a nation to produce sufficient food to feed the population in times of uncertainty. Malaysia needs to consider further investing in local agriculture and encouraging backyard farming to prepare for a self-sufficient future. “
” Let’s support local fresh produce by getting involved with our local community gardens! Growing food locally not only ensures its quality, but also providing better economic opportunity to our own community. Let’s start planting! “
Mohamad Asyraf Roslan
” Can’t spell YOUTH without YOU! The sustainable action plan starts with us as we are all part of our country’s economic and social ecosystem so let’s use our voice and energy to engage and restore order in our environment! “
” Everyone deserves equal opportunity. “
Siti Liyana Zakirah
” Using public transport can reduce our carbon footprint. But yes, we hear you: public transport is not always convenient in Malaysia. Let’s find a way to change that together, so our cities can be safer and more sustainable! “
