PPPLS Updates


Improving life on land for indigenous communities

Students and staff of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS, in collaboration with Camfil Malaysia, the National Education for Sustainable Development Work Group and WWF-Malaysia embarked on a community education initiative on May 19 2018 at the Kg Batu 20 indigenous village in Tapah, Perak.


What is Pertubuhan Pendidikan Pembangunan Lestari Selangor (PPPLS)?


Pertubuhan Pendidikan Pembangunan Lestari Selangor (formerly known as National Education for Sustainable Development Workgroup) was formalized on February 16th, 2015, in line with advocating a more holistic and transformative ESD agenda. The formation of the workgroup was a key result of a brainstorming session with Malaysian ESD experts, practitioners, and stakeholders on the future of ESD in Malaysia, in August 2014. PPPLS is advised by Yang Berbahagia Tan Sri Dzulkifli Abdul Razak, President of the International Association of Universities, and co-chaired by WWF Malaysia’s Mr. Thiaga Nadeson and Universiti Teknologi Petronas’s Dr. Subarna Sivapalan. Since its inception, WWF-Malaysia has played the role of a host to the group. Members of the workgroup include academicians from Malaysian public and private institutions of higher learning, Malaysian environmental NGOs, educationists from Malaysian local and international schools. The workgroup has presently identified 11 key areas to streamline within present WWF domains and beyond, in line with local, regional, and global dialogues on sustainable development and ESD, post the Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) and Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) agendas.
