Green Catalyst & Curriculum
Addressing sustainability and green technology is a cause in which YaHijau is passionate about; its mission under Green Catalyst & Curriculum is to connect and empower schools nationwide to lead the transformation into global sustainability.
YaHijau believes that schools are the transformational hubs of their communities that builds resilience, transforms markets and policy, promotes behavioral changes and prepares the next generation of innovators to become environmental stewards of the nation.
Among the objectives are to groom and further educate young school children and teenagers to be the change agent in promoting and raising awareness on sustainability and sustainable living in their surrounding communities. This will be done via integration of sustainability subjects into pre-school, primary and secondary school levels including tertiary education syllabus. In meeting this mission, YaHijau also aims to promote hands on activities at school level through co-curriculum activities in addition to implementing workshops for university students.
