Description of RCE and Geographic Region:

RCE Central Semenanjung is hosted by the University of Malaya (UM), the oldest higher education institution in Malaysia and was initiated by the University of Malaya Living Lab and Center for Dialogue & Transformation (UM LL/CDT) based in Fraser Hill, Pahang, Malaysia. Currently, RCE Central Semenanjung is placed under the administration of The Community and Sustainability Centre (UMCares).

Research and activities at RCE Central Semenanjung are designed to integrate the surrounding natural environment, socio-economic activities and human community in a sustainable and symbiotic manner. The main focuses of RCE Central Semenanjung since its establishment are more on extending the collaboration with stakeholders by finding better mechanisms through meetings and jointly-collaborated programs. Outreach and awareness programs in understanding ESD were implemented through formal, informal/non-formal education for multiple levels of stakeholders. Several programs for youth empowerment were planned accordingly to nurture self-awareness on ESD as the legacy for the younger generation. Other than that, RCE Central Semenanjung is establishing the official channel of communication and advertisement through a website, Facebook and Twitter.

We welcome collaboration with other RCE members worldwide. Engagement opportunities include, but are not limited to research partnership, participation in symposium and seminar, volunteering opportunities and others.
