Over the next three weeks, 21 youth from villages in the central Sabah district of Telupid and Ranau will learn, discuss and explore what their natural environment means to them and how they could create green businesses and other sustainable livelihoods.
“I hope that I can become more independent and learn how to develop tourism related programmes and fish farming. At the moment, I do not have much knowledge about the natural environment and this programme is a way for me to learn,” – Rosepilin Asdin of Kampung Bunakon
“I was uplifted by the energy of the young men and women I met; they were so ready and eager to learn more about their ecological landscapes, dive into issues and understand how developing alternative livelihoods can help shift the realities on the ground.” – Cynthia Ong, Executive Director, LEAP.
