Are you interested in conservation efforts in your local community? Join Alicia Teoh, founder of Shah Alam Community Forest Society (SACFS) and Suresh Kumar, member of the Save Kuala Langat North Forest Reserve coalition and SACFS member to hear about community led conservation efforts in Malaysia.
Bring your ideas for how you would like to make change in your community. We’ll discuss and workshop potential campaigns!

SACF Society is a community-based organisation consisting mostly of Setia Alam residents who came together in 2014 to protect a small forest in their backyard. Today SACF is a vibrant urban community forest visited by thousands every week to enjoy nature within a city.
