"Nature's Avengers" Initiative – for youths, by youths. Established early of January 2013, this youth-led movement under Green Brunei looks to creating opportunities for younger kids to be involved with the environment. How so? We thought of getting them in the jungle!

Nature’s Avengers is an example of an independent group of youths to be able to self-initiate and be exposed to how volunteering projects like these are conducted with the lending hand of the Youth Centre.

The green initiative journey began by pulling eleven like-minded youths together to come up with a plan to educate kids about the environment, or to simply say, “to save the world!”. The initiative is aimed at collaboration with the community to explore habitats that might be endangered or to simply expose Bruneians to more than just the “greenery”.

Nature’s Avengers Team: Nani Azlan, Irene Lee, Hanna Hassanal, Bazeelah Rafaea, Nur Alya Syafiqah, Norizi Shahrol, Tiong Hua, Ahamd Zaki, Azhiim Ghani, Fadli Zaini, Nur Amalia & Muna Munjiyah Malik

Right now, the project is central to helping primary-level kids to let them independently interact with the natural environment while teaching them the importance of sustainability, conservation and preservation of our green jewels. This includes planting of Gaharu trees, creating fishponds and turtle hatcheries.

Earlier in the month, we travelled to Bintudoh located at Ulu Tutong to survey and prepare the project site. It turns out Bintudoh is an Eco-tourism site in development with huts already constructed. We took benefit to facilitate the fertile site while helping the Bintudoh community to develop the conservation facilities and to expose Bintudoh as an exploration site for adventurous travellers.

About the Editor

new about me profI am a born and bred Bruneian who lived and worked in Australia for over 10 years. I am now based in Brunei. Having spent time away from Brunei, I have learnt that, to know a country is to know the people. To truly appreciate a new place is to see it through their eyes, to listen to their stories, to taste, smell, do and feel as they do.

Everyone has a Story, and this blog - Projek Brunei, features the stories, music, photography and art of locals and of people who have lived or worked in Brunei before. Join me on this project, a project to discover and rediscover this country they call the Abode of Peace, the Heart of Borneo, this place they call the Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures...through the stories of the People.

You may know me by my online moniker, @BruneiTweet. I created BruneiTweet in 2009, and currently (October 2016), I have over 30,000 followers. I am passionate about community, and use social media to connect with people - both on and offline.

I have an MBA, a keen interest in business-development and marketing, and I am a three-time TEDx speaker. I believe in the power of social media and collaboration. I have worked alongside corporate organisations on various community projects. Some highlights from my journey to date: In 2011, I co-organised Twestival Brunei to raise awareness and funds for Brunei’s Child Development Centre. That year I also organised Convergence, Brunei’s first youth led leadership forum. In 2012, I co-organised Movember to raise awareness on men's health issues. In 2013, I participated at various forums including Brunei's National Environment Conference and the ASEAN Social Media Exchange in Thailand. In 2014, I was selected to represent Brunei at the Australia-ASEAN Emerging Leaders Programme. In 2015, I was involved as a panel moderator in an International Women's Day event, and was invited to speak at the Green Leaders Eco-Camp in Brunei about using social media with purpose.
 
But enough about me.
