The Tiger Award - Strength & Perseverance :

Name : Sangga Sinnayah

Afiliation : SJKT Bayan Lepas
 

Definition of The Tiger Award - Strength & Perseverance :
Tigers are fierce and straightforward; they keep on fighting if it means for survival. Recipients of this award are just like that: constantly hungry for more, unwilling to settle for anything less. They will fight tooth and nail against all prejudices and all judgement. As such, recipients of this award tend to succeed greatly in what they due, simply because they are straightforward and clear. Recipients of this award are often the fiercest yet kindest leaders alive.

Eco Champion Awards 2020

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Programme holds a prestigious annual celebration to award the bright ideas and dedication of our local young environmentalists.

We identify individuals who positively contribute towards a sustainable living – and encourage communities and even local councils to support their green initiatives.
 

Since 2017 we have recognised hundreds of individuals who go the extra mile for the environment in a range of ways.  Their stories are inspirational - some have been in charge of their school’s organic vegetable patch or wildlife pond. Others led the fight against energy waste or encouraged others to recycle. Some raised awareness of Fair Trade or raised money for various environmental causes. Some have done it all and together they have had a massive impact on sustainability and well-being within their communities and beyond.

Congratulations to all
Eco Champions!

We have concluded the annual Eco Champion Awards for the year 2020. This initiative aims to reward individuals who have been contributing to their communities with commitment and passion for the environment. The evaluation process was challenging because we received many outstanding nominations. We thank all the future sustainability leaders who were involved in the process.

The award recipients were chosen based on their leadership skills in influencing and changing their communities’ views on sustainability. They have played a significant role in guiding change for sustainable practices and have become a great inspiration to many other young leaders. WWF-Malaysia encourages more nominations to be submitted in the next edition of the Eco Champion Awards. Once again, congratulations to all the award recipients.
