LOCAL non-profit organisation and community group Zero Waste Malaysia (ZWM) had a chance to showcase its MY Zero Waste Life – Summarised handbook at a festival in Berlin, Germany.

The Creative Bureaucracy Festival brings together stakeholders from the public sector to showcase projects on an international stage.

ZWM, which advocates for sustainable development and aims to increase the local community’s awareness of sustainable living, was represented by co-founder and director Khor Sue Yee, marketing and communications executive Tasha Sabapathy as well as handbook lead designer Ho Kae Jing.

The festival celebrates outstanding innovation in the public sector and its contribution to a better and more sustainable world.

It brings together innovators and changemakers that fight for the common good to make a difference.

The MY Zero Waste Life – Summarised handbook is an all-inclusive guide to living a sustainable life in Malaysia.

Information is relayed through storytelling techniques with interactive visuals that are suitable for all ages and talks about behaviour change through simple actionable steps that can be done as a community. It is in line with the festival’s values to showcase contributions leading to a sustainable world.

ZWM is the only team representing Malaysia at the festival that celebrates creative solutions.

The Malaysian NGO is currently on the lookout for sponsors and partners for the upcoming 3rd Zero Waste Festival in September and the second 30-Day Zero Waste Challenge in October.
