Use less plastic, paper for future National Day performances

Brunei Darussalam celebrated its National Day recently. This year’s celebration was retaining the theme ‘Menjayakan Wawasan Negara’ or ‘Accomplishing the National Vision’ as part of Brunei Vision 2035.

One of the many visions of the country is to capture the limitless opportunities created by technology and yet, we did not incorporate it with the National Day performance.

Paper and plastic were still used as props. It is unfortunate and saddening as it is going against the government’s initiative of curbing the amount of plastic/paper waste in the nation.

I hope the authorities will consider utilising technology in future National Day performances and other national level events.

Go Green
