The Conference - Building Bridges for Sustainable Consumption & Production
Malaysia, a young nation aspiring to develop in a manner that is inclusive, equitable, competitive & progressive, has identified Sustainable Consumption & Production (SCP) in the 11th Malaysia Plan (2016-2020) as a key driver along its preferred path of green growth. The agency SCP Malaysia & a draft National SCP Blueprint were created towards this end.
In realizing the importance to support this journey, WWF-Malaysia has conceptualized a working idea, targeting youth leaders from some of the major universities in Malaysia, in collaboration with key partners. As youth are always regarded as active consumers, future leaders, decision-makers & voters, it is imperative they need to be exposed to the sustainable lifestyle now before they are absorbed into their working life.
