RCE Penang

RCE PenangĀ operates through the State of Penang, with its island, territories on the mainland and its neighbouring states. Penang has been acknowledged as among the most liveable places in Asia. It's rich in tropical and cultural treasures but, like any other state with rapid economic development, Penang faces challenges such as large scale property development and rapid urbanization, which are causing environmental and social stresses.

  • Increase volunteer opportunities around sustainable development;
  • Coordinate the compilation of current ESD practices across Penang and neighbouring states in order to share and generate regional ESD good practices; and
  • Cultivate sustainable development competencies in the existing workforce.
