Cultivating Future TFG Leaders@Foon Yew High School, Malaysia

Statue of Confucius at Foon Yew High School, Johor Baru, Malaysia

子曰“因材施教”与“有教无类”。这也是无烟新一代(TFG)的所秉持的教育精神。为了预防年轻人染上烟瘾,TFG团队(Dr Koong, Dr Lynn 和 Emma)于2020年1月16日和2月29日到访位于马来西亚柔佛州的宽柔中学。我们有幸和约20名宽中的学生交流,探讨烟草对吸烟者乃至整个社会的害处,以及TFG将如何克服这些烟草有关的问题。

这是新山宽柔中学同济会副会长,叶姿贤,对分享会的感想:“(TFG团队) 很用心地把TFG倡导的内容传授给学生们,不只是一昧地传授无烟草的概念,更是训练同学们的表达能力以及自信,让他们可以继续感染同侪,从而实现TFG的愿景。当今社会抽烟者日益增加,身为地球的一份子,我们都有责任阻止情况继续恶化。然而,同侪之间的鼓励与渲染是最有效的方式,因此我认为TFG的概念有必要在青少年的圈子里广泛宣导,使抽烟者不再增加,甚至不再有抽烟者出现。如今我们正协力倡导TFG,愿所有人能够一同努力,创造无烟草新一代。”
新山宽柔中学教师,杨珮云老师,对TFG也给予极高的评价:“TFG programme 借由数据、机密文件、传媒包装等,充分展示烟草公司如何欺骗年轻人的手段。课程的信息多元丰富,深入浅出。(TFG团队)耐心地指导学生,学生们具有更大的信心,以一颗刚强谨守的心,拒绝烟草,更在反烟草运动上,寻见自己的能力,奉献个人力量。透过年轻人兴起,表决不吸烟,当无烟草一代的信念已经传递并且凑效,许多生命必然获得拯救。就如课程最后,无烟草世代的宣告:烟草将有末后的时刻,因为“龙”世代的火焰更甚于一支打火机(The blazing fire of the dragon generation is more powerful than a lighter. ) ”

Birth-year based, compulsory education law

As we recognise that education is the most important for our future generations, we, in Singapore, made this birth year based law for future cohorts born after 1 January 1991. Shouldn’t we have a birth year based law to protect the health (probably even more important, if not the same as education) of our future generation?

“But majority are non smokers. A big part of the majority are underage”

Congratulations Congressman Joet Garcia. Balanga City achieved prevalence of smoking down to 7% now with a combination of comprehensive smoking prevention strategies, proper implementations and promotion of the Tobacco Free Generation Endgame concept from 2016. In other words, you do not need ENDS/E Cigs. The world need leaders like you who champions public health and confronts the blindspots in current tobacco control measures. The industry uses the Minimum Age Law to the public’s disadvantage.

Feedback from one of the TFG Singapore team members DY ” Love this! As a former partipant in the TFG movement from Singapore, I am proud to see my Filipino brothers and sisters promoting this movement with such passion and veracity that can only be found in those who truly believe in the cause they fight for. As the current generation, it is our duty to step up and do our part to fight the tobacco epidemic in any way we can. Social media is one of them; it is an excellent way to spread information quickly and effectively. Since many people have access to smartphones and use social media often, I hope that this video will reach as many people as possible, and inspire them to support the TFG movement

Well said DY!
