Sembang title : Elephants: A Life to Some, An Accessory to Others
I'm a student from SMK Damansara Jaya. Though I have limited experience in public speaking, I am driven by my conviction for this issue as well as other environmental issues. I am honoured to have this opportunity as a platform to address this quandary and shine a light on the plight of the voiceless. I also believe in standing up for what is right whether it be on gender equality, education or protection of wildlife. My goal is to use my voice and do whatever it takes to make this world, even in the slightest bit, a better place.

SEMBANG@WWF 1st INSTALLMENT
What is Sembang@WWF?
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.
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. As you notice that the endangerment of tigers is not due to a single factor, we would like to encourage the speakers to speak on various themes relating to tiger conservation.
Interested to know why we are emphasising on tiger conservation for Sembang@WWF 2018, take a look at the video below:
