The Yayasan Hijau Malaysia, or fondly known as YaHijau, was established with the goal of promoting and educating youths in Malaysia on the importance of green technology. Spreading knowledge to the young helps cultivate a greener lifestyle at home and for future generations. YaHijau plays a central role in encouraging the participation of corporate entities, communities and the general role towards green living practices in Malaysia.

As part of their initiative to advocate a green lifestyle, YaHijau ventured off to Pekan Rabu, Langkawi for Karnival Yayasan Hijau Malaysia (YaHijau) 2016, a carnival with over a hundred eco-conscious interactive events, exhibitions and lectures. The carnival is a non-profit, rather it aims to promote and increase public understanding, appreciation and empowering lifestyle green living in the community.

Tan Sri Dato’ Haji Muhyiddin bin Yassin launched the foundation in 2014 to promote greater awareness of green technology and practices. First launched in Sadah, the programme ‘marked a good beginning that can be capitalised by all layers of society, the business community and industry players in Sabah to better understand the importance on the use of green technology and practise a green lifestyle.’ The Sabah Government firmly believes that optimizing the use of green technology will improve conditions of human development in the context of socio-economic and environmental concerns in the future.

Eco Club and KAGC set up a booth to promote the green technology courses available at KAGC as well as to display the Eco Tech gallery. KAGC offers a variety of courses that tend to the increasingly demanding green technology. Among the participants were also several guests of honor. Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Maximus Johnity Ongkili (Menteri Tenaga, Tecknologi Hijau & Air) visited the Eco Club and KAGC booth and was fascinated at the students who were working at our workshop. Similar to the workshop at Port Dickson Beach Clean Event, the participants would mix food colouring with sand to put into a decorative bottle. Karnival Hijau Malaysia 2016 attracted over five hundred participants, adults and students who were eager to participate in an event that encouraged a better world.
