YMM Sabah Branch will organise YMM Green expo on May 17-19
KOTA KINABALU: The Young Malaysians Movement (YMM) Sabah Branch will organise YMM Green Expo on May 17-19, at Likas Sports Complex in conjunction with Sabah Youth Day.
YMM Sabah chairman Deric Chiew said the purpose of the expo is to raise awareness of the community towards environmental protection in view of global warming.
Some 20,000 people including 30 primary and secondary schools from around Kota Kinabalu are expected to turn up for the event.
The event to be launched by Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Haji Aman on May 18 is divided into 11 segments offering exhibition and interactive programmes for the youth and public to participate, said Chiew.
“Apart from the exhibition, the public are welcome to join and a special on-site production of EM Mud-ball workshop using EM Rice Rinse Water,” he said.
Sabah Youth Council president Kevin Lim thanked the state government for endorsing them to stage the event for the third year running.
Visitors also stand a chance to win draw prizes in the form of electrical appliances on May 18 and the winners will be determined based on the persons who called the organiser after a lucky number is picked.
“This is to allow those who stay back at the event to win the prizes because in the past we just simply draw the numbers but sometimes the winners have left the venue,” he said.
The youths in particular are encouraged to come for the big scale carnival like event as many programmes have been drawn up for them, he added.
