We had the honour of having the deputy minister of MESTECC , YB Isnaraissah Munirah Majilis to launch the Greenation@UiTM ceremony at Dewan Annexe, UiTM, Shah Alam yesterday 13th June 2019.
The deputy minister launched the Greenation@UiTM very graciously and later in her speech highlighted some alarming figures on rubbish disposal and accelerating waste management cost and the urgent need for awareness and immediate action.
Prior to that the VC of UiTM, Prof Emeritus Ir. Dr.Mohd.Asraai Kassim spoke about Greenation@UiTM as a step towards green initiative and sustainability in the university.
The day started with a short session by Prof Dr.Azni Zain Ahmed who discussed the importance of education towards a Green campus and the linkages between mitigation strategies and SDGs.
A few MOUs/MOAs were signed between UiTM and Green-related organisations and 2 universities.
InQKA had organised a workshop on Sustainability earlier this year and one of the key activities was to execute the launching of green initiative in UiTM. Hence the launching event which originated from the workshop went on with pomp and grandeur.
There were a few booths at the event showcasing products which were made from recycled materials while others were exhibiting environment friendly and green research and processes. The Greenation theme song which was composed and performed by our own talent from Faculty of Music was also aired during the event.
