Forever Sabah Institute (FSI) is an integral part of Forever Sabah (FS): the transition towards a diversified, equitable circular economy in the Malaysian Borneo state of Sabah.

experience, learn,
transform, repeat.

The three core functions of Forever Sabah Institute within the FS ecology are:

(1) To support Forever Sabah’s teams to become effective changemakers;
(2) To provide opportunities for Sabahans and Malaysians to experience, learn from, and be transformed by FS’s work;
(3) To enable learning between Sabahans, Malaysians and others in the region and beyond.
FSI is founded on the idea that to be an effective changemaker, we must commit to extend ourselves in at least five key areas of our lives.

Forever Sabah Institute

FS team members want knowledge and skills to become more effective changemakers and achieve personal, social, economic and ecological transformation. FSI builds a web of learning spaces by weaving modular, experiential and practical curricula around FS’ projects; facilitating localised and grounded learning opportunities by Sabahans, for Sabahans, and exchanges between Sabah and others in the region and the world.
FSI training is grounded in place with various partners, particularly on the KampOng Campus for Eco-Literacy and Change.
