Earth Hour is coming this 19 March 8.30PM to 9.30PM. I am fully support the Earth Hour, and we practice switching off the light every year at home too. This year, it’s going to be something different. In conjunction with the Earth Hour celebration this 19 and 20 March, The School in Jaya One, PJ will be kicking off the Eco-Schools Training Centre in collaboration with the Eco-Schools Programme by WWF-Malaysia (World Wide Fund for Nature Malaysia) on the Ground Floor.
This is going to be a cool event as we can expect myriad of educational workshops and exhibitions on sustainable living, live performances by talented homegrown artistes, food bazaar and a healthy living eco-camp throughout the two days.
“We are very excited to be working with the Eco-Schools Programme by WWF-Malaysia to bring forth this meaningful initiative to all the families in The School. We hope that this training centre will help shift mindset and empower the young generation to start recycling their waste as well as to educate them that every little step counts in making the world a better place,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd, the developer for Jaya One and The School.
All the activities are open to public and will commence from 11am until 9.30pm on Saturday, and 11am until 4pm on Sunday. For all food aficionados, this two-day event is not to be missed as it also boasts various gastronomical delights featuring artisanal food vendors and food trucks ranging from local favourites to homemade desserts.
On 19 March, the evening will be further enlivened as Megan Tan, the well-known TV personality, will be taking the centre stage to entertain the crowd. There will be exciting performances and appearances by the learning tenants in The School as well as a host of notable entertainers such as Dina Nadzir, Baki Zainal and Shawn Lee, just to name a few.
