Youths Uniting For the Earth!

Youths United For Earth (YUFE) want to celebrate Malaysia's environmentalism, one youth at a time. The youth-led NGO aims to mobilise Malaysian youths for environmental action through environmental storytelling, grassroots community-building, and policy advocacy. The group recently received the Diana Award, set up in memory of the Princess of Wales, presented to 200 youths worldwide aged 9-25 to acknowledge their humanitarian work, and earlier this month, they were also recognised under the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE)'s  30 Under 30 program, which recognises young people across the globe who are building a sustainable future through education. We speak to co-founders Max Han and Nurfatin Hamzah, to find out more about the group's efforts, and also ask them their hopes for future Malaysia.
