Climate change is not a distant threat and it is important to engage the youth who will be the future leaders, to start the discussion on climate change and the role they can play. His Excellency Richard Lindsay, British High Commissioner to Brunei Darussalam highlighted the matter at the 'The Great Discussion' yesterday morning.
The competition was won by the Sengkurong Sixth Form Centre, after beating Sayyidina Ali Secondary School. The schools discussed the topics of Brunei Darussalam's ASEAN Chairmanship in 2021 which focuses on climate change and sustainability, protecting forests and biodiversity will be an important tool in the fight against climate change and ASEAN countries' economies will be directly impacted by climate change.
Among those present were Datin Seri Paduka Dr Hajah Romaizah binti Haji Mohd Salleh, Deputy Minister of Education and Yang Berhormat Dayang Khairunnisa binti Haji Ash'ari, Member of the Legislative Council as Co-Founder of Green Brunei. The competition was co-organised by the Co-Curriculum Education Department, Ministry of Education and the British High Commission in the country with the support of Centre for British Teachers, CfBT and Standard Chartered Bank.
