The INTEC “Sustainability & Eco Campus Initiatives inauguration ceremony was launched yesterday at INTEC Education College, Petaling Jaya.  Organised by INTEC in collaboration with Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), it was a very meaningful event as it was Earth Day – 22nd April.

Professor Dr.Zakiah Ahmad, the chairman of UiTM Sustainability Secretariat officiated the event which was attended by more than 100 participants consisting of academics, college students and school students.

The event started off with a welcome address by Professor Dr.Yamin Yasin, CEO of INTEC Education College. This was followed by a very interesting keynote address delivered by Prof Dr.Sumiani Yusoff, Chairman of UM Eco campus. Besides highlighting cases of this year’s theme “Protect Our Species”,  her presentation centred on the 5Rs and the importance of going Green.

It was followed by a prize giving ceremony for video and short-film competition. A few booths were set up, displaying and selling eco products ranging from compost to coconut-oil products and products made from reused and recycled materials.

As said very aptly by Prof Dr.Sumiani, “Going Green is not a fad or a fashion, but everyone needs to work towards it as it’s our responsibility”
