International Earth Day - 2019

International Earth Day is an annual event that is held to demonstrate support for environmental protection. The theme for this year’s event is “Protect Our Species”. The goal is to educate and raise awareness about the accelerating rate of extinction of millions of species and the causes and consequences of this phenomenon.


 A photobooth was set up outside the U Lounge where residents were able to show their support towards preserving 7 endangered animals in Malaysia using specially-designed face masks.


Residents also participated in a memory game which educated them on which animals were endangered or close to being extinct. At the same time, the memory game allowed the residents to realise how much of an impact humans have on our planet. Later that night, the students watched an award-winning documentary titled “Before The Flood” inside U Lounge, which discussed climate change and also featured Leonardo DiCaprio.
