Hello Children...
Malaysia is blessed with all the natural resources and beautiful environment. However,
recent years there are reports stating that global warming is happening due to human activities.
It has negative impact on our environment as well as our daily life.
To address this problem, our country has joined many other countries in the world to
reduce the emission of greenhouse gases, particularly carbon dioxide (CO2), which is the main
cause of global warming. Iskandar Malaysia is moving towards to become a Low Carbon Society.
Using this Eco-Life Challenge workbook, let’s learn ways to reduce carbon emission and protect
our Earth together with our family before it is too late for the future generation.
You will work in a group of 5 (different races in a group) to complete this workbook. Most
of the pages must be completed individually except some pages marked with “GROUP WORK”
can be completed in one of the members’ workbook. You will compete with other groups to win
this Eco-Life Challenge Competition. The winner group must have most sections completed from
all members honestly, reduce the usage of water and electricity at home of all members, and
give correct answers to pages 7-9 and 20, and creative answers to pages 21-23.
Malaysia mempunyai sumber semula jadi dan alam sekitar yang indah. Tetapi,
kebelakangan ini banyak berita tentang pemanasan global akibat aktiviti manusia telah
dilaporkan. Ini memberi kesan yang negatif kepada kehidupan seharian kita.
Bagi mengatasi masalah ini, negara kita telah bergabung dengan negara-negara lain
bagi mengurangkan gas ‘rumah hijau’, khususnya gas karbon dioksida (CO2), yang merupakan
punca utama pemanasan global. Iskandar Malaysia sedang menuju ke Masyarakat Karbon
Rendah. Dengan menggunakan buku kerja Eco-Life Challenge ini, mari kita mempelajari cara
untuk mengurangkan pengeluaran karbon dan melindungi Bumi kita bersama-sama keluarga
kita sebelum ianya terlambat untuk generasi akan datang.
Anda akan berkerja dalam kumpulan yang terdiri daripada 5 orang ahli (pelbagai
kaum) untuk melengkapkan buku kerja ini. Kebanyakan muka surat perlu dilengkapkan secara
individu kecuali beberapa muka surat yang ditandakan “KERJA KUMPULAN” yang boleh
dilengkapkan dalam buku kerja salah seorang ahli kumpulan. Anda akan bersaing dengan
kumpulan lain untuk memenangi pertandingan Eco-Life Challenge ini. Kumpulan yang menang
mesti melengkapkan semua bahagian dengan jujur (semua ahli), mengurangkan penggunaan
air dan elektrik di rumah setiap ahli kumpulan, memberikan jawapan yang betul dalam muka
surat 7-9 dan 20, serta jawapan yang kreatif dalam muka surat 21-23.
SEMOGA BERJAYA

SATREPS (Science and Technology Research Partnership for Sustainable Development) is a
Japanese government program that promotes international joint research targeting global
issues. Global Challenges cannot be met by a single country or region acting on its own, so
engagement by international community is essential. To address these issues, SATREPS
works through three to five year projects involving partnerships between researchers in
Japan and in developing countries. SATREPS projects are expected to lead to outcomes
with potential for practical utilization, and to enhance research capacity in developing
country. The program is a collaboration between two Japanese government agencies: Japan
International Cooperation Agency (JICA) and Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

To the teachers...
Malaysia has pledged a 40% reduction of its greenhouse gases (GHG) emission
by year 2020 (based on 2005 emission baseline). Iskandar Malaysia, through creating
a Low Carbon Society, has joined the effort to reach the goal. “Children’s Eco-Life
Challenge” is one of the many programmes that work towards realizing the vision, as well
as contributing to the global effort in addressing global warming.
Though this is conducted as a competition, through this “Children’s Eco-Life
Challenge” workbook, teachers play an important role in raising the awareness about
the effects of our daily lifestyle on the environment, and instilling low carbon practices
among children. So, teachers must take this opportunity to discuss the issues through
this workbook in classes with the students.

What is Low Carbon Society (LCS)?
A Low Carbon Society is a society where the people live a simple but high quality
life, by emphasizing on family or community ties, and in harmony with nature, with
minimum emission of CO2.
There are three principles of LCS:(i)
Carbon minimization in all sectors
All sectors minimize their CO2 emission, including transport, industry, residents (consumer), agriculture and so forth.
(ii) Towards a simpler lifestyle that realise richer quality of life
Society forgo mass consumption and place more value on family, health and interaction with nature to build a higher quality of life
(iii) Coexistence with nature
Human are a part of the global ecosystem. As such, we need to maintain and restore rich and diverse natural environment, in order to achieve a LCS by securing CO2 absorption to adapt to global warming.
As children, the future leaders, we need to learn to uphold these principles to
create a beautiful, harmony and comfortable place to live in the future.
Apa itu Masyarakat Rendah Karbon atau Low Carbon Society (LCS)?
Masyarakat Rendah Karbon merupakan masyarakat di mana penduduknya
mengamalkan cara hidup yang sederhana tetapi berkualiti tinggi dengan
mentitikberatkan hubungan masyarakat dan harmoni bersama alam sekitar bagi
mengurangkan pengeluaran gas karbon dioksida.
Terdapat tiga prinsip LCS:(i)
Pengurangan karbon dalam semua sektor
Semua sektor mengurangkan pengeluaran CO2, termasuk sektor pengangkutan, industri, penduduk, pertanian dan sebagainya.
(ii)
Ke arah cara hidup yang sederhana dan kesedaran hidup berkualiti tinggi
Masyarakat menghentikan penggunaan besar-besaran dan meletakkan lebih nilai ke atas keluarga, kesihatan dan interaksi dengan alam semula jadi bagi membina hidup yang lebih berkualiti
(iii) Hidup bersama alam semula jadi
Manusia merupakan sebagaian daripada ekosistem global. Kita perlu memerlihara alam semula jadi yang kaya dan pelbagai untuk mencapai LCS supaya CO2 dapat diserap.
Sebagai kanak-kanak, andalah pemimpin masa depan. Kita perlu belajar dan
mendukung prinsip ini bagi mewujudkan tempat tinggal yang indah, harmoni dan
selesa untuk masa depan.

□Kes 1: Ais cair, menyebabkan paras air laut naik dan
tenggelamkan pulau
Global warming will cause melting of ice on Antarctica and
Himalaya Mountains and rise of sea level. This may cause
islands in South Pacific Ocean sink under the sea water.
Pemanasan global menyebabkan ais di Kutub Selatan dan
Gunung Himalaya cair dan meningkatkan paras air laut.
Ini boleh menyebabkan pulau-pulau di Lautan Pasifik Selatan tenggelam di bawah air laut.

The global average temperature had risen by 0.75C in
100 years (1906-2005). In Malaysia, it had risen by

average temperature will rise by 6.4C at maximum which
can cause serious damage on the nature and human.
Suhu purata global telah meningkat sebanyak 0.75◦C dalam masa 100 tahun (1906-2005).

RAMSAR sites in Iskandar Malaysia
The RAMSAR Convention of Wetlands is an intergovernmental treaty that
promotes the conservation and wise use of wetlands through local and national
actions and international cooperation.
There are three RAMSAR sites in Iskandar Malaysia. They are Pulau Kukup
(647 ha), Sungai Pulai (9,126 ha) and Tanjung Piai (526 ha). One hectare (ha) is
slightly larger than one football field (0.82 ha).
These three RAMSAR sites consist of mangrove forest, intertidal mudflats,
seagrass beds as well as inland freshwater riverine forest. The area supports
many animals such as the Flying Fox, Smooth Otter, Bearded Pig, Long-tailed
Macaque, Mangrove Blue Flycatcher and Mangrove Pitta which are nearthreatened and vulnerable in the IUCN Red List.
These sites are important in severe flood prevention and control (shoreline
stabilization), as wind-breaker, a breeding ground for fisheries, and also a
popular site for eco-tourism.
Children’s Eco-Life Challenge is the
program which started in Kyoto in 2005.
I (Eco-chan, City of Kyoto mascot) am
very glad to hear that friends of
Iskandar Malaysia are going to carry out
“Eco-Life Challenge” this time.
