Can You Hear The Eco? Campaign

Throughout the past 2 months, the IUMW “Can You Hear The Eco?” Campaign was held by the IUMW Biotechnology Club in conjunction with Earth Day, International Day of Biological Diversity and World Environment Day 2022! This campaign featured a series of fun-filled activities to spread awareness of the importance of conserving the environment.

Under this campaign, an annual Earth Day Virtual Run was held where over 70 participants ran or walked a distance of 3, 5, 7 or 10 kilometres over the span of 2 months to promote a consistent healthy lifestyle within communities through the appreciation of mother nature and inspire participants to appreciate the elements of nature that are present in their surroundings.

Furthermore, Tugu Exploration 2022 was a citizen science programme which hosted over 100 people for a day full of environmental talks, exhibitions, a mini BioBlitz, gardening and DIY workshops, and fun eco-themed activities for kids. It also doubled as the campaign’s closing ceremony commemorating the success of events.

We hope to have more educational and awareness campaigns like this in the future to talk about the importance of conserving our environment!
