Learning About Forests Programme & Workshop

GGAF collaborated with WWF-Malaysia, E-IJAU, Forest Research Institute Malaysia to bring the Learning About Forests (LEAF) Programme to SK Air Baruk, Jasin. The programme is designed to advocate outdoor learning and hands-on experiences for students to obtain a deeper understand of the natural world. SK Air Baruk was chosen as the pioneer schools for the LEAF programme in Malaysia. A kick-off meeting was convened and concluded with a site visit discussing how the implementation would be done. With the objectives of charting an increased level of awareness about how firsts play a key role in sustainable life on earth, and
stimulating activities that enrich students environmental knowledge, the LEAF Program is about identifying trees and plants to grow and create a tiny forest on school grounds.

The Tiny Forest Project Workshop was conducted in June at the Edu Park, UPM, co-ogranised with E-IJAU Millenium Explorers. 30 students and 4 teachers participated in the workshop and gained knowledge in developing a structure action plan to implement Tiny Forest at their schools.
