One journey of a thousand miles has taken root with the seeding of this hundred


We can all do our bit for society and the environment.

In support of a green environment and inspired by the bountiful wisdom shared in MESC 2016, young environmentalists of Management and Science University (MSU) address the problem of preserving natural resources for future generations. Their target: KM14 of the Guthrie Corridor Expressway (GCE).

A green day welcomed a hundred students and staff from the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences (FHLS) who joined forces on the GCE FHLS CASeH environment project. Their 1-person-1-tree fundraiser campaign raised not only enough for 100 saplings of the Bucida tree, but also the awareness of how important protecting the natural environment and improving its quality is.

Industry collaborators comprising Prolintas Expressway and GCE, who sponsored T-shirts and meals, raised their goodwill links with MSU. Professor Tan Sri Dato’ Wira Dr Mohd Shukri Ab Yajid who was present applauded GCE’s support of the MSU effort for environmental sustainability, and called on more corporations to come forward.

Complete sustainability of our natural environment may take a while to reach but every step will add up. The GEC FHLS CASEH’s 100-tree project was a chance at making a change by starting small but starting somewhere. Bucida had been chosen for the practicality of its dense foliage. The next time you drive by KM14 on the GCE, those 100 saplings may well have towered into excellent shade.

As you raise your smartphone for that selfie, remember to smile and say green.
