Yayasan Sime Darby Environment Day 2016

Welcome to Yayasan Sime Darby’s Environment Day Page!

In conjunction with the widely celebrated World Environment Day on 5th June, Yayasan Sime Darby is holding its very first Environment Day celebration in collaboration with its beneficiaries at the University College Sabah Foundation (UCSF) in Kota Kinabalu on 20 May 2016.

Echoing this year’s World Environment Day theme “Go Wild for Life”, the event hosted by UCSF, is to raise awareness on the environment and conservation among the public especially the younger generation.

The day-long event is open to the public from 9 am to 5.30 pm and entrance is free. Subsidised meals will be provided to college and university students and there will be an array of exciting activities lined up throughout the day including environmental documentary screenings, games and exhibitions, lucky draws and environment awareness workshops with YSD’s partners.

You may find below the list of activities taking place on the event day. We look forward to seeing you at our inaugural Environment Day! Come one, come all, see you all there!
