Nature's Keepers: Adrian Banie Lasimbang

For decades now, Adrian Banie Lasimbang has been at the forefront of the movement for sustainable development, and representation for Borneo’s indigenous rural communities. With a long history in grassroots activism, he was the first Malaysian to be awarded the Seacology Prize in 2004 for his success in organising indigenous communities against the unsustainable exploitation of Borneo’s forests, and his leadership on alternative energy projects. A former senator, he also founded TONIBUNG back in 1993, and has led sustainable energy projects across Borneo. Today, he is the President of Pertubuhan Suara Anak Sabah, and remains a green energy activist, advocate for renewable energy, social and environmental activist, and renewable energy developer/practitioner. We speak to him about his work, and also his concerns on the state of Sabah's natural environment, and the issues facing natives in the state.
