Sustainable Cities & Communities
Making a Visitor-Friendly Farmsite Experience
Proposed by : Urban Hijau
Founded in 2015, Urban Hijau is a sustainable one acre urban farm located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. As a social enterprise, Urban Hijau is dedicated to using the principles of permaculture (natural ecological design) to spur a movement in Malaysia towards urban sustainability in food production, waste management and general living. Urban Hijau is located on a one–acre site and grows over 150 varieties of fruits, herbs and vegetables. Urban Hijau has been operating for the past one year a 800 square foot aquaponics unit, producing over 600 tilapia fish and several tons of organic leafy vegetables and herbs, including roquette salad, mint, kale, spinach and others.
The objective of this project is to design and develop a mobile app that serves as a learning record and portal to resources for students in the MBBS programme. It should also come with a flexible function of selecting discipline, semester or year, shall help building up experiences without the confine of a fixed printed logbook- customized logbook for each posting in each semester.
