“These awards are divided into three categories, namely, Outstanding Flagship Project, Acknowledged Flagship Project and Honourable Mention.

For the Acknowledged Flagship Project category, three projects named as winners – Mainstreaming SDGs-Society as Agent of Changes, Living in Fortuitous Era and Greater Gombak Animal Shelter Project.
