Greenpulse 2010/11

To Nature’s Beat.

The Greenpulse website has been idle without any  updates for a while and I am really sorry about that but we are still moving on to keep the ‘fire’ burning.

Before we proceed, I have to say I really appreciate and thank all the efforts and contributions from the Greenpulse committee from the last semester and it was a great experience which we shared together.

The main goal of Greenpulse is the promotion of the environmental movement within the university; specifically in either the conservation or the preservation of the environment.

We play characters creating and boosting environmental awareness among the university students of UMS.

As mentioned by the founder of Greenpulse, it is a continuous effort that grows with time and we just do what we can with what we have and where we are. We share the same vision and are united as a team.

We had our committee meeting three times, the first meeting was about getting  to know what are the responsibilities of each position, how Greenpulse works, what are the activities we have to implement for this and the coming semester and future semesters as well as project leaders for each activity. Below is the list of the Greenpulse Committee 2010/2011 followed by a table listing project leaders for each activity.

The box above is a culmination of nearly 5 month’s worth of planning and execution.

KK Reef Watch’s Environmental Stewardship Programme Report

Yesterday, on the first Monday after the official end of the examination week, and more than 25 hours after my Diplôme d’étude en langue française, KK Reef Watch organized an environmental stewardship programme for students at the secluded ODEC beach in UMS.

Details after the jump!

KK Reef Watch Environmental Stewardship Programmme

Date

23rd November 2009

Time

3pm to 7.30p.m.

Venue

ODEC, UMS

KK Reef Watch is extending an invitation to all environmentalists to join them for an introductory environmental stewardship programme on the 23rd of November 2009.

Here is a list of what you can expect:

  • a barbeque party;
  • a beach clean-up;
  • a presentation on “Marine Conservation Efforts in Sabah”;
  • and a games and talent show.

The fee is RM10, and those who wish to come may submit their payment to Puan Siti Rahma or Puan Zarinah Waheed at the Institut Penyelidikan Marin Borneo.

Alternatively, you can dial the following numbers if you have further enquiries:
017-8991774
013-8638323

After speaking with Sofia from KK Reef Watch, I am pleased to announce that Greenpulse has gained another helpful partner in our environmental movement.

KK Reef Watch are willing to provide training in trash classification of beach debris – meaning any beach clean-up organized by Greenpulse will, just like the trash sampling we have carried out, generate data that can be analysed and utilised.

KK Reef Watch may also help arrange other cool activities for Greenpulse members such as whale shark watching, sea turtle tracking, and coral reef diving.

Makes you think it’s a good time to be alive, doesn’t it?
