This project is rooted in four main principles, namely; education, activism, empowerment, and creative art that guides the Orang Asli to document and create tools from their lens – as the holders of traditional ecological knowledge that has managed land resources responsibly and sustainably – that could be used as a leverage to policy makers.
In this project, we’re facilitating a group of both Master and young weavers in the creation of an art installation, which will hopefully be featured in the COP26 in Glasgow this year.
Promote the inclusion of indigenous women communities in climate action
Capacity building on the OA youth to create creative output and/or documentation that can be used to inform the public and/or influence policy makers
