Some 250 dipterocarp saplings were planted on Saturday, making a total of 507 trees planted under the Environmental Education Project this year.

The tree planting event, organised by Green Brunei in collaboration with Mitsubishi Corporation (Brunei Liaison Office) and Brunei Shell Petroleum Company Sdn Bhd, aimed to promote awareness on climate change as well as provide youth with the opportunity to be directly involved in efforts to achieve a low carbon and climate-resilient future.

Over 100 volunteers comprising students from institutions as well as the public participated in the event, supported by the Forestry Department, and the Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism.

The Environmental Educational Project’s goal is to develop youth who are well-equipped with knowledge of climate change and to instil awareness and appreciation for natural resources. Other activities under the project included a river cleanup, an art competition and field trips to Tenaga Suria Brunei and Seria Energy Lab.
