Pollution is a pox on the nation. Not only it is unpleasant to the eyes, it affects Brunei’s endeavours in establishing our tourism industry and also burdens the country’s economy in the governments efforts to dissipate the refuse-fund that should not be spend on an issue that could have been prevented.

We, as concerned citizens, have proposed several solutions to help coax Brunei to take bigger steps towards achieving eco-librium. Various suggestions include carrying out monthly cleaning campaigns and holding national competitions to determine the Kampong that had collected the largest amount of recyclables every half a year. In addition to a heightened awareness by having parents set a better example and educating the younger generation from infancy, it has been suggested to increase the ratio of recycling bin to normal rubbish bin until it is 1:1 in any given area. Our group has also put forward a radical design for the recycling bin, in which the interior of the bin would be partitioned into four detachable compartments: Aluminium, Paper, Plastic and General. Essentially, the goal would be to install at least one of these bins onto every household in Brunei. This movement can be initiated by the government through the national housing scheme. The objective here would be to gradually ensure that the habit of recycling would be integrated as a fundamental part of the everyday Bruneian life.

Pollution seems to be a growing concern in Brunei. The government and youths in Brunei are actively involved in trying to overcome this problem. The throwing of bottles at inappropriate places such rivers, drains, beaches and other public places is a growing concern. This could cause water pollution, blockage of drain and particularly land pollution. The purpose of the video is to raise awareness among youths that these problems are affecting the environment in such ways it will deteriorate the environment. Our goal is to raise awareness of the pollution in Brunei and also to be aware what the government, schools and some youth groups are doing to help to work together to reduce, reuse and recycle – as the “Little things we do” can make an impact on reducing pollution in our beautiful land, Brunei Darussalam.

In summary, the ozone layer in the earth’s atmosphere is depleting. This is generally caused by the release of CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons) into the air by spraying aerosol cans; leave the air-conditioner open in an open area where the CFC can escape to the air. The effects if these CFCs is very extreme. Once they get into the earth ozone layer, the CFC will deplete the ozone layer causing harmful radiations such as UV rays to penetrate into the earth’s crust. This UV light is very harmful in large amount. Once the body expose to it, it can cause skin cancer and cataracts.

The purpose of this video is to give awareness to the people so they can know the situation that is happening now and can be prevented if take seriously. So in the future, our earth will not be very dangerous to live on.

NAME OF SCHOOL: Sekolah Menengah Awang Semaun
PROJECT TITLE: Water Pollution in Kg Ayer
1. Nurul Aqilah binti Ahmad Taib (Year 11A)
2. Nur E’zzah Azimah bte Roslan (Year 10A)

One of the worst case of pollution that has been around the country for so long is the water pollution in the Brunei river. This is not caused by just anyone but is really due to a long term habit that the people of Kg Ayer has been doing for over a decade. A bad habit is the worse kind of attitude and the hardest to prevent and stop. And a habit of throwing rubbish in the river is a problem that Brunei Darussalam needs to stop.

The Goal of this project is to give awareness to the students of SMAS, who are the future generations of Kg Ayer, to understand the problems they are causing. Habits in parents are a harder to prevent, especially if they have been doing this for years. The place to start is always the younger generations.
