08 Mar 2017

Introduction Nuclear weapons are the most dangerous weapons on earth. With these weapons, one can destroy cities and kill millions, jeopardising not only the lives of generations of people but also the natural environment through its long-term catastrophic effects. The dangers from such weapons arise from their very existence. NW2 Keeping this in mind and with every intention of raising awareness in the IMU community, Eco Friends Club and its sub-committee members together with SokaGakkai Malaysia (SGM)made this exhibition, Everything You Treasure- For A World Free From Nuclear Weapon, a reality. cof Training sessions for the exhibition by SokaGakkai (SGM)  (4 Jan ~ 5 Jan, 11 Jan ~ 12 Jan) Prior to the exhibition, training sessions were organised by SokaGakkai to prepare the narrators for the upcoming exhibition. These training sessions were carried out by Charmaine Loke with assistance from her fellow colleague. As the purpose of this exhibition was to raise awareness regarding the dangers of nuclear weapons as well as the benefits of achieving a peaceful world free from them, these sessions equipped the narrators with knowledge and skills to spread the intended messages. The narrators were given the knowledge to explain the stories behind each panel well and the soft skills on capturing the audience’s attention while narrating. Those who went for the sessions reaped benefits that would surely be useful in the future!
