Currently, over 23,000 tonnes of waste is produced each day in Malaysia. However, this amount is expected to rise to 30,000 tonnes by the year 2020. The amount of waste generated continues to increase due to the increasing population and development, and only less than 5% of the waste is being recycled.
In accordance with the 12th Global Goal - Sustainable consumption & production, this project is created to specifically target awareness and to educate about 5R (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rot, Refuse) among high school students.
The project consists of several components for both secondary school students and global volunteers.
1st - Train the Trainer (TtT)
Which aims to equip our volunteers with enough knowledge and skills when we are engaging and teaching students about environmental theory and some activities.
2nd - School Workshops
Which aims to raise environmental awareness through education and outreach activities to empower Malaysian youths to be the agent of change for the protection and conservation of the environment with sustainable environmental management.
3rd - Action Initiative Planning
Which aims to evaluate the project deliverables and impacts, and to ensure the sustainability of our impacts even if the projects have ended with the school teachers, global volunteers and our committees.
4th - Global Village
Which aims to foster cultural exchange with the global volunteers showcasing their food, cultural elements from their home country.

AIESEC is the world's largest non-profit youth-run organization. It is an international non-governmental not-for-profit organisation that provides young people with leadership development, cross-cultural global internships, and volunteer exchange experiences across the globe. The organization focuses on empowering young leaders to make a positive impact on society through actions.
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.
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 the betterment of Malaysia.
