KUALA LUMPUR: Syllabus on the environment will be introduced in schools nationwide next year, said Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar.

He said the Cabinet had on April 6, approved its working paper to introduce the syllabus in 2019.

“A lot of ministries will be involved so that it will be comprehensive, from forestry, land, sea and air,” he said.

Dr Wan Junaidi said the syllabus would be taught from Primary One to Form Six.

He pointed out Malaysia would become the third Asean country to introduce the syllabus, after the Philippines and Vietnam.

“I am hoping all Malaysians will become environmentalists,” he told reporters after giving a keynote address during the last day of Asiawater Conference and Technology Symposium 2018, organised by UBM Malaysia at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre here.

In his keynote address, Dr Wan Junaidi said it was important for issues on water and its sustainable use to not be politicised.

“States that are blessed with abundant water resources should extend their support to states that don’t have as much,” he added.
