Climate Action Kids Engagement (C.A.K.E.) is a trial climate awareness & nature programme under MNS Selangor Branch for MNS Kids 7 to 19 years old and their parents.
The trial programme is to help nurture kid members in knowing Nature with the help of older 'sister' and 'brother' members of the Special Interest Groups. At the same time, imparting to them how climate change affects flora, fauna and habitats, and little steps they can take to act for Nature.
The CAKE pilot programme will run monthly from February to November 2023. The programme is suitable for kid members with no or very little experience in the nature activity.

Components of the programme include:
1) Surveys - before and after the field trip, kid members & his/her parent are surveyed to understand level of knowledge of the activity, programme feedback and should the programme continue.
2) Field trip - facilitated by Selangor Branch, its Special Interest Groups and habitat owners
3) Observations by participants are submitted to MNS Selangor Branch, e-Bird and iNaturalist for science conservation purposes after verification by Mentors.
We believe in smaller groups to ensure everyone has the best experience. We also prioritise kids first due to very limited places at FRIM but please note that for field trips to Rimba Ilmu, a minimum number of 10 persons is required for the guided walk.
While we are a nonprofit organisation, we have to charge a fee to cover the costs of the habitat owners (guiding fee, materials) and the logistic & travel expenses of MNS Selangor Branch and Special Interest Group volunteer mentors. Fee does not include volunteer mentors' time.
If it rains, we wait awhile to see if it will stop. If the rain continues, we will reschedule the field trip. Participants need not pay again the fee.
Kids can join a new CAKE activity (different from the one that s/he participated in) or progress to the regular SIG activities.
After the trial programme ends, we will tabulate the responses of the survey and publish the findings. If the survey proposes the programme continues, we will announce this as well.
