Jom Kenali Sungai Kelian

Jom Kenali Sungai Kelian

The Program

Penang Hills Watch co-organized Jom Kenali Sungai Kelian together with Penang Forum, Ruang Kongsi and Tanjung Bungah Residents Association with the objective of encouraging local residents to learn about rivers flowing in their neighbourhood and to raise awareness towards safeguarding Penang’s rivers.

The project began in March 2019 and culminated in a public awareness program on the 3 rd , 10 th and 17 th of November 2019
This campaign saw the participation of many locals and involved various activities like an exhibition, interactive activities, a gotong royong and a river walk.

In January 2020, a small gotong royong and briefing was done in Taman Poket Lorong Sungai Kelian 2 to introduce the idea of a linear park along the stretch of Sungai Kelian.
