We are thrilled to inform you that UCSI International School has officially received the Silver Award certificate from WWF-Malaysia for implementing sustainable practices in our school based on the eco-school 7-step methodology. Our educational practices and activities strongly align with SDG and Eco themes and we thank the whole school community for making this happen.
Eco-Schools is an international programme of the Foundation for Environmental Education (FEE) that aims to “empower students to be the change our sustainable world needs by engaging them in fun, action-orientated and socially responsible learning. The Eco-Schools Programme (ESP) is the largest sustainable schools programme in the world, which is currently running in more than 60 countries.
