FOREVER SABAH'S 25-YEAR WAVE
We are at our 5th Year in our 25-year timeline
Forever Sabah is a 25 year programme to support Sabah's transition to a diversified, equitable, circular economy.
Forever Sabah, a civil society entity, serves as a collaborative social movement rather than a bureaucracy or NGO. We are an initiative rooted in local aspirations, built by an enthusiastic team who believe we can make our state better by utilizing Sabahan knowledge and experience and working with others and across sectors.
Forever Sabah crafts international partnerships, but does not believe in relying on funding to drive change. Rather we value the sharing of experiences and new forms of currency – such as responsibility, participation, reciprocity, and trust – to achieve more effective, large-scale and collaborative results.
Forever Sabah will be delivered through a ground-up, project-based approach organised around four focal areas: Food, Agriculture & Fisheries; Energy, Infrastructure & Waste; Livelihood, Tourism & Enterprise; and Forest, Water & Soil.
Guided by the principles of equity, integrity, inclusiveness, custodianship and shared responsibility, Forever Sabah will be delivered through a ground-up, project-based approach organised around four focal areas:
Food, Agriculture & Fisheries
Energy, Infrastructure & Waste
Livelihood, Tourism & Enterprise
Forest, Water & Soil
Recognising the need to address the pressing issues of:
Habitat protection and restoration
The development of local communities
Critical knowledge and skills
Forever Sabah will maintain an over-arching focus on rainforests and marine & coastal habitats.
Forever Sabah was initiated to answer the fundamental question:
where will the state be in fifty years if it continues to progress along it’s current development trajectory?
The vision, principles, and focal areas, have evolved through an enriching 2-year engagement process involving all sectors of society; local communities, industry, NGOs, scientists and government. This uniquely inclusive conversation has in itself catalysed change, creating new relationships while empowering and energising communities.
