“I may not be able to change the country today but if I can change my entire family, that is already a very good start.” Pertubuhan Alam Sekitar EcoKnights Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor, also known as “EcoKnights”, is a not-for-profit NGO. The organization was founded by Yasmin Rasyid and Mariam Osman in 2005 as a small collective offering urban community’s assistance in developing their own environmental initiatives. EcoKnights serves the community through development-led interventions from education and awareness programs to research; and public participation programs to consultation. Their vision is to raise a nation of ecologically conscious Malaysians that embrace and adopt sustainable lifestyles
