eCulture Workshop as an Awareness Tool for Youths on Sustainability
An innovative way to engage campus youths to grasp the concept of sustainability is by means of a youth workshop using eCulture as a tool. In March 2012 an eCulture workshop was conducted for this present aim. The workshop was hosted by the University of Malaya's UM Environmental Secretariat (UMCares). This unit, parked under the Chancellery of the University of Malaya, aims to move the UM campus towards a sustainable campus through its awareness programmes on the enculturation of green and sustainable principles such as Environmental Awareness, Air, Energy, Water, Waste and Sustainability Group to fulfil the spirit of "UM Environment I Care!". This workshop's target was to encourage participating UM students to digitally record features of their campus that represent the essence of a sustainable campus. Six teams representing 11 participating colleges of the University of Malaya took part in a highly-charged 3-day digit workshop and worked in teams to capture and record what they see to comply with UM's move towards a sustainable campus in the very near future. Participants were engaged in a digital culture workshop with hands-on computer training sessions. At the end of the workshop, each team successfully produced a 10-minute video on various themes including saving energy and water as well as minimizing waste generation. The self-assessment reported that participants have satisfactorily gained ICT skills for life-long learning. In conclusion, the eCulture videos documented the UM campus as seen through the eyes of these university youths.
