Twenty-five members of the Malaysian Environmental NGOs (MENGO) have reached out to the newly minted Minister of Education, YB Dr Maszlee Malik to illustrate our Key Recommendations on the Environmental Education.
 
Our country faces severe environmental degradation arising from competing natural resource uses and over-consumption of good and services, we need also to be guided by Pakatan Harapan’s Buku Harapan that emphasises the importance of balancing growth with environmental protection (promise 39, pillar 3) as a premise to REBUILD THE NATION and to FULFILL THE HOPE of the rakyat
 
The ability to balance growth with environmental protection is the responsibility of all, including school-going children who are our future leaders. As such, education should be part of the solution in addressing our environmental problems. On this, we call on your Ministry to include Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) into the formal education system that covers more than 10,000 schools and over 100 higher learning institutions.
