Education for Climate Action for Peace (E4CAP)

Award Recipient

Education for Climate Action for Peace (E4CAP) was birthed in October 2019 to combat adverse climate change and to provide sustainable living education and livelihood preparedness training to refugees and stateless teens and youths that don’t have access to mainstream education and cannot work legally in Malaysia. E4CAP is a collaboration between PDC alumni, including refugee teens. The latter leads Teens4CAP initiatives.

Since 2019, they have organised and supported:
· Introduction to Permaculture Workshop (3 batches)
· Teens4CAP ‘Eco-Edible Urban Gardening’ Online Course (6 batches);
· Teens Celebration for World Soil Day & World Environment Day in Malaysia;
· World Soil Day Awards for Teens;
· 3-Month Vocational Internship on Sustainable Living (3 batches);
· ‘Garden to Table’ cooking video series for UCSI University and Living Lab;
· e-commerce for UCSI Living Lab for selling crops and seeds;
· Providing vegetables to refugee centres and 20 single mother refugee families;
· Starter veggie pots for 70 low income families;
· The design and set-up of edible gardens at an Alzheimer centre, a school for special need children, and UCSI University and College.
