Message From President of EcoKnights,
Yasmin Rasyid.

Yasmin RasyidThe busiest month of the year for us has come and gone and we are thankful to all our supporters for coming out during the Kuala Lumpur Eco Film Festival (KLEFF) and be inspired and motivated to live greener through our programs and activities. In its 10th year, the KLEFF has been growing stronger from your support. So here’s a peek at the pictures we took last month at KLEFF.

Moving forward to planning for our 2018 programs and activities, we are currently embarking on a simple impact survey to capture information on how the organization is doing since we were born in 2005. Thus, if you have ever been part of our programs and activities, we cordially invite you to take this simple five minute survey to help us learn about your feedback on our programs and also help us learn more about improving ourselves. So head to this link and the EcoKnights survey today.

Here’s wishing everyone a great days ahead!
