Media Tour Of Melaka Green Flag Schools

Four media reporters attended the media engagement visit to Green Flag in Melaka. Reporters from Melaka Kini, Sin Chew Hit Poh, The Sun and Sinar Harian went back to school to learn about how Eco-Schools programme was changing the way young students thought about their environment, climate change and what they were doing to save the planet. The one-day affair, in turn gave the students the opportunity to show the media the schools’ green initiatives in supporting UN Sustainable Development Goals. Two Eco-Club team members, namely SMK Bukit Baru and SK Air Baruk involved 50 of their students and 20 teachers to give the media a tour of their rainwater harvesting systems, food composting system, biodiversity corner and urban farming techniques.

GGAF partnered with WWF-Malaysia on this event that intended to help raise Green Flag Schools profiles, gain positive comments from the media that make powerful endorsements of Eco-Schools programme and Green Flag Schools, as well as establishing long-term relationships with journalists for future endeavours. The was well-received by the media and subsequently generated more than 20 articles in printed and online media.
