Ketua Pengarah Kementerian Pengajian Tinggi Datuk Dr Rujhan Mustafa berkata

negara ini mencapai status EcoCampus menjelang 2017.

"UMS merupakan universiti awam pertama yang berani untuk tampil dengan pelan

yang kukuh (dalam pemuliharaan alam sekitar) untuk jangka masa yang panjang.

"Jika (pelan) ini berjaya, ia bukan sahaja menjadi kejayaan negara di mana

agensi kerajaan dan swasta atau entiti lain boleh rujuk, tetapi ia juga akan

menjadikan UMS dikenali di dunia melalui peranan seumpama ini," katanya kepada

pemberita selepas majlis pelancaran pelan tindakan tersebut di Pantai Pusat

Kegiatan Luar (ODEC) Institut Penyelidikan Marin Borneo UMS di sini hari ini.

Rujhan, yang mewakili Menteri Pengajian Tinggi Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled

Nordin, turut menyaksikan memorandum persefahaman ditandatangani antara UMS

dengan 11 rakan EcoCampus bagi menyediakan kepakaran masing-masing, sokongan

kewangan dan aktiviti promosi mengenai pemuliharaan alam sekitar.

Naib Canselor UMS Datuk Dr Mohd Harun Abdullah berkata pelan tindakan lima

tahun itu akan bertindak dalam usaha menangani isu-isu kritikal berkaitan

perubahan iklim dan melindungi alam sekitar menerusi lima teras utama dalam

pelan tersebut iaitu pembangunan mampan, perlindungan ekologi, keserasian alam

sekitar, pemuliharaan sumber dan pengawasan alam sekitar.

Beliau juga berkata universiti itu akan mengadakan bengkel bagi mengenal

pasti kaedah sistematik dalam mengendalikan dan memperbaiki amalan penjagaan

alam sekitar sebelum memasuki fasa implementasi.

"Ini adalah pendekatan yang menyeluruh. Kami bercakap mengenai usaha

meminimumkan pencemaran, pendidikan alam sekitar dan kami mahu melibatkan semua

warga UMS dari peringkat petugas pentadbiran kepada pelajar-pelajar itu sendiri.

kampusnya apabila mencapai status EcoCampus serta mempromosikannya sebagai

produk pelancongan di Sabah.
