Rediscover Brunei Darussalam through the eyes of the People
Greetings Readers! Word on the street is that Forevershine Events, Media and Management Services are bringing a circus to town! It's slated to start on at the end of March 2013. You can tickets from their office in Jalan Tutong (see poster for details), Orchid Garden Hotel, Soon Lee branches, Fitness Zone branches, etc. Check out Rano's blog and Forevershine's Facebook Page for more details.
"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.
