Department of Urban and Regional Planning Community Social Responsibility Activities

The Department of Urban and Regional Planning, Faculty of Built Environment, UTM Johor Bahru, under the Management and Governance Course have organized a number of mini Community Social Responsibility (CSR) activities within the month of November, 2016. The idea of having a mini CSR is to provide the opportunity for each student to have more hands-on management of an activity and face-face interaction with the community. The mini CSR activities targeted varied groups of the community giving each group different experience to later share them in class presentations.

Altogether four groups were formed with between 6-7 members per group. The targeted communities are Kampung Sungai Melayu, Nusajaya; the Johor Down Syndrome Association; the Shan De Welfare Association, Johor Bahru; and the Pertubuhan Kebajikan Insan Istimewa, Johor. All communications regarding the events were made between the students and the communities involved.
