BackgroundALAM collaborated with WWF Malaysia and Pertubuhan Pendidikan Pembangunan Lestari Selangor(PPPLS) to determine the status of EE/ESD infusion and integration in the formal and non-formal education system in Malaysian schools.
ImpactIt is critical to develop a baseline for EE/ESD integration in Malaysia due to the following:
  1. The development of holistic learning of EE/ESD in the Malaysian education system today, will have implications for the development of pro-environmental behaviour in Malaysian society overall in the future.
  2. Through the findings of the study
    • We will have informed empirical evidence of the status of the infusion.
    • Integration of EE/ESD and pro-environmental behaviour in Malaysia.
    • The Ministry of Education can reimagine relevant sections of the education system, to be in line with the SDG goals for transformed pro-environmental behaviour. This will be a top down approached led by industry (ie. academia).
    • Environmental NGOs can plan more focused non-formal EE/ESD educational
  3. Malaysia is a keen proponent of the SDGs, where we are required to report the status of the implementation of EE and ESD within the public education system at all levels thus, this study will assist in this matter.
