Save Our Waterfalls Campaign 25th October 2009 - Kanching Waterfalls
Waterfall Survivors – a social group on Facebook, the most popular social online network, will be organizing a clean up campaign and a Eco Awareness Talk at Kanching Waterfalls in Rawang, Selangor.
We have selected this event venue and date to commemorate Sir Gerald Templer’s contributions to our country and the dire need to preserve the cleanliness of this waterfall to revive its identity as an enjoyable and well-known place of interest. This event will also mark Waterfall Survivors' achievements in exploring numerous waterfalls in Malaysia and your effort in eco-awareness and advocacy for community and corporate/personal social responsibility.
The event is aimed to create awareness among the public on the importance of preserving our natural heritage for our children. The SOW campaign will be the group’s main public event, which will be held at any other waterfalls in the country.
To add value to this campaign, we are also taking part in the International Day of Climate Action which is to create awareness on the Global Warming. Check out http://www.350.org
