The second episode of our new KTWhat?! podcast features KTJ staff, Ms. Paige Hardisty in conversation with KTJ Alumni, Anand Ramakrishnan, discussing Earth Day and sustainable energy solutions.
Kolej Tuanku Ja'afar was founded in 1989 by members of the Negeri Sembilan Royal Family. Their vision was to create school which encapsulated the strengths and values of a British boarding education, infused with the vitality of Malaysian culture.
Anand Ramakrishnan is a proud KTJ and Naquiyuddin alumnus who fondly remembers spending much of his time at KTJ on the sports fields. After completing his AS levels at KTJ, he then went on to pursue an exciting further education in the UK, completing his Masters in Transport and Management at Imperial College London. His passion for sustainability brought him back to Malaysia where he has made ground-breaking change in energy saving strategies. His ability to combine classical engineering theory and new age technology allows him to find and deliver simple solutions to major global issues.
As the first school in SE Asia to work towards the Planet Mark certification, furthering our commitment to becoming more sustainable by 2030. Over the coming year we will be working with The Planet Mark to measure and reduce our carbon footprint across the entire school and in celebration of Earth Day 2021, we had an inspiring journey while recording this session with Anand. Hope you will too. Happy listening!
