Sustainability

Goal 14: Life Below Water

Aquaterra is a one-day event that takes place at UCSI University (KL Campus), targeting students to help create awareness on the sustainability of marine life and the ecosystem. Students get to experience and be exposed to what is really happening below the sea through a series of modules and simulations carried out. In addition, they also get to learn how to differentiate types of waste in order to recycle properly. The aim of this event is to get participants to leave with a new mindset and be willing to make a change for the betterment of the natural environment (particularly the sea) even through a small step.
