The Environmental and Social Responsibilities (ESR) Office of Youth Beyond Boundaries (YBB) UCSI recently organised the much-anticipated "Terrafix: Zero Waste Festival." The event, held at UCSI's campus, was aimed at raising awareness of zero waste practices among UCSI students and educating them on practical ways to reduce waste. The festival's main objectives were to inspire sustainable habits and encourage participants to take action towards waste reduction.
The festival's highlight was the Zero Waste Bazaar, which featured an impressive array of vendors promoting zero waste products. Additionally, the festival hosted two informative talks and workshops, providing students with practical knowledge and insights on waste reduction practices.
The Plastic Waste Workshop focused on educating participants about the impact of plastic waste and provided insights on adopting a zero-waste lifestyle. During this workshop, participants learned how to repurpose used coffee sachets into coasters.
The Used Cooking Oil (UCO) Workshop addressed the importance of managing used cooking oil and its potential transformation into biodiesel and candles. Participants had the opportunity to engage in candle making with UCO.

With the hard work and dedication of 107 enthusiastic volunteers, an impressive 224.59 kilograms of rubbish were collected from the beach. There were two kinds of trash: dry waste and wet waste which were segregated, and they included 2 bags of plastics, 3 bags of paper and even 1 bag of cigarette butts!! Each piece of litter removed contributes to a cleaner and healthier marine ecosystem. A group of students from University of Queensland on exchange programme with UCSI and students from Sri UCSI Springhill Private School have also participated.
The "Beach Cleanup" event highlights the significance of collective efforts in preserving natural resources and promoting sustainable practices. Through such initiatives, we pave the way for a greener and more sustainable future, benefiting generations to come.
UCSI impressed upon its school students the importance of SDG today and gave various examples on how they can produce projects that promote sustainability. Within the next 10 days, the students having been segregated into groups, are to present each of the group ideas (to be judged by UCSI and partners) and to implement them in the coming academic year. The sessions were contributed by Dr Mabel Tan (Principal of UCSI College), Mr Fauzi Zanil (UCSI Sustainability Ranking Manager), Ms Chin Wen Yen (student at UCSI University) and representatives from Youth Beyond Boundaries of UCSI University.
