Message From President of EcoKnights,
Yasmin Rasyid.

Yasmin Rasyid

It’s one of the craziest times in the office now as we gear up for the 10th Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival. In its 10th year, the EcoKnights team has come a long way to bringing this non-profit environmental film festival to Malaysians.  Make sure you check out what’s in store at www.kleff.my and bring your loved ones and friends to enjoy the ultimate green screen experience.

In the last month, we have been active in our community-based river rehabilitation efforts for both Sungai Bunus and Sungai Kerayong. A range of community engagement programs will be organized in the next few months. If you’re looking to be part of an urban river restoration effort, come talk to us. We have two river basins that are devoid of riverbank vegetation in which your organization, company, or even school club, can start making a difference by repopulating the vegetation there. Taking action is the most important part of our environmental movement, so don’t wait.

Lastly, tune into our social media platforms on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter and stay abreast with the latest information on our programs and activities, and how you can play a role in it.

Have a wonderful Merdeka celebration and Selamat Hari Merdeka!

What Our Interns Say: Dewi & Benjamin Chai

What Our Interns Say: Dewi

Dewi @ Caroline Kopf
During my internship, I got the chance to prepare and attend various workshops, client meetings, and client events. One of my personal highlights was the 5k Bottled Hope Trail Run at the beginning of my internship, followed by various hands-on workshops and a tree planting session with the public. It was a perfect opportunity to get to know EcoKnights and the work we do, as well as bonding with my team.
