Green Team, the environmental committee at the Australian International School Malaysia (AISM), recently welcomed the Australian High Commissioner of Malaysia, His Excellency Dr Justin Lee, for a working lunch to discuss sustainability and climate change initiatives the Green Team will be taking this year.
Dr Lee’s model climate action initiatives can be categorised into creating awareness, raising funds, and implementing practical measures. Following this model, project ideas were shared by students of all ages and discussed. The theme for 2022 finalised during the event was “Students for Sustainability”. Students of Year 11 and Year 12 also participated in a debate on the topic “This house believes that human-induced climate change is the biggest issue in history.”
Overall, the His Excellency’s visit and the working lunch organised by the Green Team was a roaring success. And the fact that stood out from this glorious accomplishment of the AISM environmental committee was the great leadership, social responsibility, and community consideration that the students of AISM showcased.
