70th Anniversary Press Conference
8 Sep 2010
This October will see the culmination of MNS’ 70th Anniversary list of activities whereby a 2-day International Conference will be held on the 8th and 9th of October followed by the Royal Dinner on the 10th of October.
On 7th September 2010, the official announcement for these two very special events was made to the media whom we hope will join us in spreading the word about our celebrations and efforts over this last 70 years out to the public.
The International Conference entitled “Challenges & Solutions for Tropical Biodiversity” will see a host of international and local speakers, each experts in their selected fields present their findings and research on the ever present topic of biodiversity. These experts will discuss the challenges faced in the last 70 years and more importantly, offer urgent solutions to biodiversity threats that we hope, can be adopted in the future.
The highlight of our celebratory events will without a doubt be the Royal Gala Dinner which will be attended by Seri Paduka Baginda Yang di-Pertuan Agong and Seri Paduka Baginda Raja Permaisuri Agong as the Royal Guests of Honor. Also as special guests at the dinner will be a myriad of MNS’ long term corporate supporters and partners such as Academy of Sciences Malaysia (ASM), The Body Shop Peninsular Malaysia, Natural Resources and Environment Ministry, Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA), Sime Darby Foundation and HSBC Bank Malaysia Berhad.
We hope that these events will highlight MNS’ long term commitment to conservation and environmental education and that we will continue to be supported and recognised as Malaysia’s longest standing environmental NGO.
