Protect our beach with Petronas and Angsana Teluk Bahang

We live in a fragile ecology that needs our ongoing care and attention. Sadly, recent years have seen tremendous environmental degradation brought on by human activity, especially in our
coastal regions. Beaches, which were once pure and peaceful havens, are now threatened by pollution and rubbish, which also lessens the natural beauty that previously lured people from near
and far. The Beach Cleaning Event has become a potent movement in reaction to this worrying scenario.

Organized under the HOST Club lead by  Muhamad Irfan and Community Engagement lead by  Aidatul Anis. The primary goal of this beach cleaning campaign is to address the problem of pollution and trash on our beaches. We in SEGi College Penang believe that this beach cleaning activity is perfectly align with Angsana Teluk Bahang core vision that is sustainability and social responsibility. Thus, our school of Hospitality and Tourism are attracted to the line with motto of Angsana Teluk Bahang that is “Embracing the Environment, Empowering People”, thus we are excited to collaborate with Angsana Teluk Bahang to be the stewards of the environment, people, and culture through this event.

At the same time, SEGi College Penang also been invited to collaborated together with Petronas Chemical Group lead by Aime Aqelah, Strategic and Planning Executive. This
beach cleaning program may become one of a platform to connect a dot for Petronas Chemical Group passion for progress drives to create better solutions that benefit people and the planet. Each
dot such as this programme may help Petronas to be one step closer to the goal of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and create a more sustainable future for all.

At the end of the event, 80kg trash have been collected along the Angsana Teluk Bahang Beach with the help of 20 students, 20 Petronas officers and 20 Angsana Teluk Bahang Staffs.
Overall, this trip become an eye-opening programme for all the students to raise on their sustainable development goal 14 that is about “Life below water”.

We in SEGi College Penang hope that this event may prevent and significantly reduce marine pollution of all kinds, in particular from land-based activities, including marine debris and nutrient pollution.
