BANDARAYA MELAKA, Malaysia, 27 February 2009 – Qusyairi Zazili, 15, is a budding environmentalist with a concern he recently revealed at the first ‘OneMinutesJr’ video workshop hosted in Malaysia by UNICEF and the Ministry of Education.
“All the air pollution, all the open burning, the global warming, it bothers me. I am trying to do my part to save my world for my future generation,” said Qusyairi, who produced a one-minute video called ‘Gas’. “I created a video about the environment, mostly about air pollution. I don’t think the air we all breathe is clean enough. So I am doing my part to spread the message.”
