Yayasan Sime Darby Environment Day 2017

Crops For the Future took part in the Yayasan Sime Darby Environment Day 2017, which was held at the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre on 9 May 2017.

The one-day exhibition was held in conjunction with World Environment Day (June 5) to promote public awareness and understanding on the importance of conservation and healthy environmental systems, while encouraging the public to be more active when it comes to caring for our environment.

CFF exhibited in the 'climate change zone' and held activities showcasing our work from farm to table. A poster storyboard was set up to get the public to visualise how climate change is affecting our food production and supplies, and how we can diversify our resources. We also provided a hands-on activity, whereby the public got a chance to plant and take home their own sawi (mustard greens) after answering questions on CFF. Professor Sayed Azam-Ali, Chief Executive Officer of CFF, also spoke to students on the importance of diversifying our global food basket with underutilised crops.
