English Language Fellow Steven Holland taught a two-hour workshop on the environment to students from the east coast of Malaysia. The students rode buses in to Kuala Lumpur’s main library this past Monday to attend the workshop.

Attendees, who were selected by the local environmental non-governmental organization (NGO) and US Embassy grant recipient Empower, heard a short presentation on reducing, reusing, and recycling, before competing in a poster-making competition and poster session. Poster ideas ranged from using old shoes as letter carriers to making bags out of old ties.

This activity was conducted to support programming initiated by Empower and arranged jointly with the Lincoln Corner at the Kuala Lumpur public library.

“I was impressed with how creative students were on their posters and how professionally they presented their ideas. They’ll make great leaders someday,” Holland said.
