Creating People Centric Ecomobility Recreational Park giving Preference to Sustainable Transport Options (PJ-EcoMobility).
The primary objective of the project is to re-establish the meaning of Good Mobility by Creating People
Centric Ecomobility Recreational Park giving Preference to Sustainable Transport Options. This
project will raise the awareness and build capacity of various categories of urban Malaysians to
assess their respective energy usage for transport in order to motivate them to reduce their use of
transport to sustainable levels, thereby also lowering their greenhouse gas [GHG] emissions and their
climate change carbon footprints. It is important that this message be brought to adults as well as
children.
It will complement and supplement some of the work of the Ministry of Transport, as well as Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, and to some extent, the Ministry of Energy, Water and
Communications, the Sustainable Energy Development Authority (SEDA Malaysia) and the Energy
Commission (ST).
The project activities include the following:

and the Taman Jaya Recreational Park users, Section 10 residents, Businesses, etc.
