Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities

Plogging is an activity which incorporates the collection of trashes while engaging in outdoor workouts such as jogging, running and hiking. The aim is to encourage the community to engage in an active and healthy lifestyle while taking good care of the environment at the same time. To advocate this purposeful habit, our members organise plogging sessions on a monthly basis by clearing up some of the hiking trails around Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. Throughout the programme, we have also engaged with the public to raise awareness about the benefits of this activity and encouraged them to join us or practice it themselves in their daily lives. The programme is a great platform to instil the concept of green-living through the reduction of carbon footprint, waste management and other environmental concepts among the community while instilling the concept of Green Living among the community by engaging them in an activity that is simple yet benefits one's health and the environment as a whole.
