Tiger in Malaysia is critically endangered, with a decrease from an estimated 3,000 in the 1950’s to only about 300 at present. The declining tiger populations are threatened primarily by habitat loss, poaching and wildlife trade, lack of food and human-tiger conflict.

About The Event
Sembang [pronounced same-bunk], a bilingual story-telling platform is the brainchild of WWF-Malaysia ESD. It aims to provide youth with their own platform to speak and share their ideas on environmental sustainability activities to a larger audience through story-telling. Additionally, its creation is aligned to ESD’s aspiration of creating and developing young leaders who are capable and willing to change their mindset and behaviours for a more sustainable future.
The idea hinges on one of the steps advocated in the strategies of ESD - informing and involving society in their sustainability initiatives ongoing in their respective schools, teacher education campuses, universities and even communities.
Sembang though it alludes to a laidback sentiment in Bahasa Melayu, will be the total opposite of its linguistic meaning in execution. The word was chosen because it embodies the spirit on inclusivity of ESD. It also symbolises aesthetic value and traditional knowledge promotion, which are among the core values of ESD.
