Adenan Wants Environment Concern To Be Included In Curriculum

KUCHING:  Environment care and concern should be included in the education curriculum as one of the aspects that need to be looked upon to tackle such issues, said Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Adenan Satem.

He said there was a need to urgently review the curriculum so that the growth of environmental-economic based strategies would be apt with the changing times.

“We have to move from the traditional and static structure of our environment policy and guidelines to accommodate changes that will bring in more dynamism to the economic and environmental growth,” he said at the launch of the International Federation of Landscape Architects Asia-Pacific Region (IFLA-APR) Conference here today.

His text of speech was read by State Local Government and Community Development Minister, Datuk Seri Wong Soon Koh.

Adenan said the development in economy and technology, which had resulted in the emergence of new knowledge and working approaches, had also raised the importance of environment protection.
