GREEN Brunei will be organising the 4th Green Leaders Camp at the Youth Centre, Bandar Seri Begawan, from December 5 to December 8.

The camp, themed ‘Sustainable Tourism Development’, will cover a number of topics including sustainable tourism, marketing and digital storytelling and youth volunteerism.

Participants will be involved with different stakeholders such as the Tourism Department, Ministry of Primary Resources and Tourism (MPRT), Ministry of Communications, Heart of Borneo, Radisson Hotel, Poni Divers, Borneo Guide and Kunyit 7 Lodge.

According to a statement issued yesterday, the camp hopes to train youth leaders and promote youth mobilisation by exposing participants to issues and environmental initiatives led by NGOs in the country.
