LCES Programme Launch

Under the Paris Climate Change Agreement 2015, countries agreed to limit the rise in global average temperature well below 2 degrees Celsius by curbing their carbon emissions. Low Carbon Eco-Schools (LCES) was launched in line with the national and regional goals to reduce the GHG emission. Although schools are not involved in formulating the strategise to reduce GHG, they have a potential reach to educate and to make an impact as the programme not only focuses on students but also households by involving parents and community.

A total of 64 students and 32 teachers convened at the Melaka International Trade Centre (MITC) for the LCES launch to understand more about the Carbon Inventory Programme. The objective of this programme is to implement significant steps towards eventual climate neutrality that includes the completion of a 2-year emissions inventory.
Sixteen schools were identified to implement this project with the collaboration of Hang Tuah Jaya City Council, where students will be guided through a series of workshops, data collection and intervention in order to reduce carbon emission in the council zone.
