“Edu-Cat-Malaysia” is taking action to help “Clean Up the World”

“Edu-Cat-Malaysia” has demonstrated its commitment to positive environmental outcomes for the marinas and waterways in Malaysia in 2011, by joining the global community based “Clean Up the World” campaign.

“Edu-Cat-Malaysia” will join an estimated 35 million volunteers from 130 countries across the globe taking responsibility for the future of our earth.

David Bradley from “Edu-Cat-Malaysia” said that by taking part in Clean Up the World this year, “Edu-Cat-Malaysia” is offering the community a way to take ownership of the local environment and to play their part in its ongoing wellbeing. He said: “As a member of “Clean Up the World”, “Edu-Cat-Malaysia” is going to clean up the marina and waterways at the Royal Selangor Yacht Club (RSYC) in Port Klang working in close partnership with the RSYC and the Rotary Club of Bandar Bukit Tinggi. We’re calling on the whole of the Kuala Lumpur, Klang Valley and Port Klang community to join us in helping to fix-up, clean-up and protect the Klang River, an area we know and treasure. The campaign theme this year for “Clean Up the World” is: ‘Our Place… Our Planet… Our Responsibility’.

This is a reminder that by taking action to benefit our own local area, we’re also contributing to something much bigger. We’re part of the global effort to protect our planet for future generations.”

“Clean Up the World” Chairman and founder, Ian Kiernan AO said “Edu-Cat-Malaysia” will play an important role in the 2011 “Clean Up the World” campaign. “It was great to learn that “Edu-Cat-Malaysia” is showing leadership in Port Klang and Malaysia by taking part in “Clean Up the World” this year,” he said. “They understand what their local environment needs, and the “RSYC Cleaner Marina Day” project they have planned to take place on October 15, 2011, will make a valuable contribution to both the local area and the global campaign.”

“Clean Up the World” started in Sydney, Australia in 1993 and is held in partnership with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). The annual campaign brings together non-government organisations, community groups, schools, governments, businesses and individuals to undertake activities to improve water quality, clean up local streets, parks, waterways and forests and educate children about the environment.
