Do I need a science studies background to do environmental work?

Not at all. Many other arts and humanities disciplines are also invaluable to help the sector grow. For example, Macaranga is a journalism portal that highlights environmental and sustainability issues in Malaysia. Graphic design capabilities are also much needed in developing captivating social media content to educate and inform the public.

Environmental law experts are crucial for litigation, such as on indigenous land rights or the pollution of natural resources. Political science or public policy experts are required for government and corporation engagement to push through environmental agendas. Environmental economists apply principles of economics to the development and management of scarce resources, allowing for ringgit-and-cents discussions with government and corporations. The possibilities are endless!
