Macaranga Wrap-up: June 2022

In June 2022's roundup of environmental news, done in collaboration with award-winning environmental journalism portal Macaranga, we look back at news of resistance to large infrastructure projects in Malaysia. We discuss the RM5 billion hydroelectric power plant at Mukim Ulu Nenggiri in Gua Musang, and also the new proposed airport in Pulau Tioman, and explore the environmental and social impacts of these projects which have been outlined by the communities affected by them. We then look forward to the upcoming Penang Georgetown Festival, which has two eco-themed programmes in the lineup.
