Environmental Education mooted as new subject in schools, universities ( Actually we already experience nature education in school since in 1960 and enhanced in 1970. 1987 new approach of teaching environmental education in schools and keep improving until now. After more than 20 years the implementation integrated approach of environmental education was not really effective. They are many reasons.. Government can make a good policies but when come to implementation, we cannot perform. WHY? to get the answer please refer to the true experts.


When we started we cannot stop eventhough people try to protest ot not supporting. There are many good peopole in this world are willng to support the good activities like MyCYS. we can visit my last comment on MyCYS and read newspaper reporting on MyCYS. Next yeear I hope will be better one and all will support. Please forget those who are not suipporting good thing if we want to progress. This MyCYS not for individual performance but just a small contribution to the country. Especially when the country is not well performed in STEM, so why not we all come forward and support MyCYS.

another memory. campaigning for recycle centre. Our culture we like to copy what the expert say but we like to do wrongly or diverted it OR in many occasion we like to listen to those who at ourv level. Sorry if we want to move forward as developed country we must listen and respect the educated one.

Something that we need to make it happen, we must repeat it many times so that people will listen, see and actions. Then we keep reminding them so that they will remember as part of their history. Later they will practice in their life. NOT that easy to change human thinking and lifer style. Education is very important.

They should assess their staff at the age 0f 40-50 years old and try to get their expertise. Do not be threathen by your staff because you are already the boss. Get their strength to strengthen your department and leadership.

Food always easy to attract tourists. This special location attarcting tourists to stop and taste specially cooked of local clams. It is very interesting BUT we must look at continuous supply if it is in high demand. Biologists must help to provoide a sustainable industry. Another thing is pollution. Wild clams usually exposed to pollution especially in the poorly managed domestic and industrial or agricultural wastes. The local authority must look in to this in all aspects. Experts advice is needed.

If one thousand ton of solid wastes from one municipal area dumped in landfill site, we can imaginge how much are the recycle items. People collecting rubbish in landfill sites are making money. Why we do not separate our rubbish from our house? The "scavengers" stay there. eat there and may be "breeding" there. They have small huts, restaurant and small shops too.
