Protecting the planet we call home

In school, I was an active scout and my interest in the environment grew from there. In 1974, I helped to set up the Environmental Protection Society of Malaysia and the group of us did a study of Klang River’s pollution level by collecting its water and testing the samples in a friend’s lab.

Introduction

PJ-EcoMobility is a project undertaken in collaboration between CETDEM and MBPJ. This project is being undertaking using the LA21 formula whereby the park users, residents, businesses and other community based groups are invited to be involved in this project.
