A total of 38 students participated in a field trip to Tzu Chi Recycling & Education Centre in Ayer Keroh, Melaka on 19 May 2023. The trip was organised by the Foundation in Business Department, Faculty of Business. The students were accompanied by three lecturers namely Ms. Kerk Peck Hoon, Ms. Ng Lik Neo, and Ms. Goh Wei Wei.
The trip aimed at raising awareness of environmental protection among MMU students and how they could further apply it on campus. The students partook in a tour around the centre which consists of workstations, a gallery, a thrift store, and a reading corner. They also experienced a hands-on activity, where they were given 20 minutes to do the sorting of recyclable items.
Towards the end of the visit, a brief talk about environmental protection was given and it was ended with a kahoot game. All in all, it was indeed a fruitful trip, and it is hoped that the students could apply the knowledge gained to make the university a more sustainable campus.
