The 7th International Symposium of Environmental Leaders in Malaysia

October 13, 2014

The Environmental Leadership Program held its 7th international symposium with strong support from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) on October 13 in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Professors and students from both universities gave research presentations during the symposium. Both universities agreed to continue their mutual cooperation even after the current environmental leader program finishes in March. Two days of field study were also carried out following the symposium; students and staff from both universities visited a mangrove national park, and a rainforest reserve to learn about management of ecosystems and harmonizing with local communities. The trip was a great experience for students to study environmental issues and solutions in one of the fast-growing countries in Asia.
