GEORGE TOWN, June 27 -- The Environment and Water Ministry has introduced the Jana Graduan Hijau (JAGUH) programme to give 10,000 new graduates the opportunity to venture into sustainable green entrepreneurship.
Deputy Environment and Water Minister Datuk Dr Ahmad Masrizal Muhammad said the programme would be launched starting in the third quarter of this year by providing entrepreneurship training to graduates, especially those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
“The programme provides a more sustainable entrepreneurship training such as businesses using recycled equipment that can attract customers such as hipster cafes.
“Initially we are targeting 10,000 people and they will be given two years of training, this is part of the efforts of the Environment and Water Ministry to help graduates become entrepreneurs,” he told reporters after attending an event at Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), here today.
He said the ministry was also identifying local universities interested in participating in the JAGUH programme as well as striving to create young graduates who can face more challenging situations than the ones right now.
