Green Drinks KL: Reconnecting with Forest


Greetings from Green Drinks KL Team!

We thank you for attending Green Drinks KL: Films & Environment! Your presence has helped to make this event a great success and your enthusiasm and positive spirit have helped make our time together both productive and fun.

     We hope that the session has managed to spark the creativity you to make more films. Films have managed to empower people to share their voice and allow us to fight and protect what is dear to us.

      Sustainable Development Goal 15 aims to "protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss".

     Forests play an important role not only in our local welfare but also in meeting global objectives. Forests provide natural resources for the local communities whilst reducing the risk of natural disaster, including flood, landslide and drought. In a wider perspective, forests play an important role in mitigating climate change through carbon sequestration, contribute to the balance of oxygen, carbon dioxide and humidity in the air and protect watersheds, which supply 75% of freshwater worldwide.

     However, many of us tend to take the forest for granted. As part of an international community in moving toward a better future, we cordially invite you to join us in our upcoming "Green Drinks KL: Reconnecting with Forest".

     Should you wish to register, you can sign up here:
