THE PROBLEM


In 2019, 3,108.9 thousand tonnes of solid waste are produced and the recycle rate of Malaysia is only 28.1%. As for Sarawak, 690,000 kg of waste are produced daily, which is 3 times the national average. With this amount of waste in Malaysia, local landfills are swamped and local rivers are badly polluted with 300,000 tons of waste released into the river annually. Timothy Marimuthu, senior executive for business development of Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd said: “Some 125ha of land has been converted to manage waste and the landfill we have now is supposed to last 25 years. But at the rate that Kuching is going, we are going to have less than that. And once this landfill is filled, we cannot do anything but leave it as a park.” To solve this problem, people need to learn about waste segregation and starts to practise 5R concept in their daily life to reduce the amount of waste produced.

THE SOLUTION


To educate the society  on important of waste management and spread awareness about the consequences of waste issue on environment and humans,  AIESEC in Kuching  had came up with this project - No Waste Wasted. Through this project, we implement different key activities to raise awareness on the waste management issues in Sarawak and educate public to practice 5R concept  in their daily life. We also gather like minded youth to be our volunteers to create a larger impact in achieving these initiatives. Our goal is to create a cleaner environment and decrease the amount of solid waste in Sarawak through virtual fundraising campaign, NGO collaboration and public awareness. 

Train the Trainer (TtT)

-  Aim to equip our volunteers with enough knowledge and skills when we are creating social media content and making portfolios to promote our virtual fundraising campaign effectively, with the kind help of our Partners Giving Hub

Social Media Drive 

- Which aims to raise the awareness and the importance of waste management by creating informative contents via Social Media Platforms such as Facebook and Instagram. Graphic media contents like poster and brochure will be created and shared to social media platforms to raise awareness as well as to promote an effective way in managing waste which is through virtual fundraising campaign. 

Podcast

- Which aims to encourage youths' peers and family to understand waste management and build inclusive society, creating a 'ripple effect'. Several interview sessions will be conducted by volunteers with prominent figures from the NGO to gain insights about its motives, visions, movements and typical operations in conserving the environment. 

THE IMPACT


Behavioural Change of Volunteers 

- Behavior change is measured using the Likert scale where the volunteers choose from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree) to statements related to waste management.  Their choices are then further categorised to Negative, Neutral and Positive behaviour. We are targeting a 70% Average Increase of Positive Behavior after the virtual volunteer program. 

Number of Outreached

- Number of people outreached is measured through number of likes, views, comments on each post on social media platforms. We are targeting a total of 100 online engagements. The impact of each outreach is measured using feedback forms distributed to workshop attendees. We are targeting a 70% average increase of awareness using Likert scale where the attendees choose from 1 (Strongly Disagree) to 5 (Strongly Agree) to statements related to waste management.

Our Vision

AIESEC strives for Peace and Fulfilment of Humankind's Potential as an organisation. 

In today’s context, ‘Peace’ does not necessarily mean only avoiding war. Peace can symbolise a world that does not have conflicts that arise from cultural, religious, or other aspects of differences in humanity. Peace can also symbolise being in harmony with yourself. AIESEC strives to build a world where people can work towards their own understanding of peace while respecting and understanding the views of others.

Through Fulfilment of Humankind’s Potential, AIESEC strives for a world where people can be the best version of themselves.


Our Action

We place our confidence in youth because they have the passion, dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit that are needed to shape the future. They have the responsibility to improve tomorrow by choosing who they will be today. Hence, AIESEC is a platform for young leaders to run projects that are aligned with Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to ensure its relevance to the local community needs. We aim to be part of the solution for a betterment of Malaysia.
