My Sustainability Goals for 2022:

There are numerous issues that need urgent attention, such as the enormous waste management problem and urgent housing problem, that will necessitate strategic intervention by the government. Younger generations are rightfully worried and anxious about the increasing negative impacts of pollution and climate change, in addition to the rising costs of goods and services. With collaborative efforts and leadership from government, industry, education and the community, these problems can be effectively addressed.
