Green Riders Episode 8: We Love You Kelab Alami!
At the southernmost tip of Continental Asia, where Malaysia looks out over the water at the island of Singapore, is the point known as Tanjung Piai. In this region, Serina Rahman invited Green Riders to visit the community where she works and lives.
Kelap Alami, or Nature Club, is a community-based program designed to empower rural youth by educating them about their environment, in this case mangroves and sea grass, so that they can monitor it and become interpretive guides for visitors.
The result is that the children have led the entire community to better understand and care for their unique corner of the world and cultivated alternative means of generating income, in a place where the traditional ways of fishing and agriculture are losing ground.
GREEN RIDERS is a video-journey, exploring environmental stories, struggles and successes, across Southeast Asia, by bamboo bike and other sustainable means.
