The yearly Earth Hour celebration is coming up again this 19th and 20th March. In conjunction with the annual event, The School in Jaya One will be kicking off the Eco-Schools Training Centre in collaboration with the Eco-Schools Programme by WWF-Malaysia (World Wide Fund for Nature Malaysia) on the Ground Floor. Being a big advocate of what The School does, I'm sharing this upcoming event here the blog.

The public can expect myriad of educational workshops and exhibitions on sustainable living, live performances by talented homegrown artistes, food bazaar and a healthy living eco-camp throughout the two days.

“We are very excited to be working with the Eco-Schools Programme by WWF-Malaysia to bring forth this meaningful initiative to all the families in The School. We hope that this training centre will help shift mindset and empower the young generation to start recycling their waste as well as to educate them that every little step counts in making the world a better place,” said Charles Wong, Executive Director of Tetap Tiara Sdn Bhd, the developer for Jaya One and The School.

All the activities are open to public and will commence from 11am until 9.30pm on Saturday, and 11am until 4pm on Sunday. For all food aficionados, this two-day event is not to be missed as it also boasts various gastronomical delights featuring artisanal food vendors and food trucks ranging from local favourites to homemade desserts.
On 19 March, the evening will be further enlivened as Megan Tan, the well-known TV personality, will be taking the centre stage to entertain the crowd. There will be exciting performances and appearances by the learning tenants in The School as well as a host of notable entertainers such as Dina Nadzir, Baki Zainal and Shawn Lee, just to name a few.

When the clock strikes 8.30pm, The School will be converted into a picnic in the dark for an hour as nonessential lights will be turned off for an hour in support of Earth Hour, a worldwide movement to raise awareness on climate change and other environmental issues. So what are you waiting for? Set it in your schedule, and head to The School at Jaya One this 19th and 20th March 2016!
