Barter market (9.30am to 12.30pm)

We are often educated to reduce and reuse things to avoid unnecessary rubbish production. Do you know that bartering is a good chance to share things that you are no longer using with others who need it more? You might even find some treasures that you have been looking for at the market organised by Savepot Malaysia! All you have to do is to bring a mat and things that you want to exchange with others during the carnival! Happy bartering!

Film screenings (10.00am – 11.30am // 1.00pm – 2.30pm)

Sometimes documentaries can be boring, but I promise that these two sessions of documentary screenings is a must-attend if you are interested in viewing the environmental issue using a different perspective! Brought to you by EcoKnights, we have two films to share with everyone:

  • Emptying the Skies The chronicles of the rampant poaching of migratory songbirds in southern Europe.
  • Plastic paradise The journey about Angela Sun seeking the truth about the island of plastic garbage somewhere in Pacific Ocean.
