The Ulam School project intends to alleviate the impact of non-communicable diseases on public health in Malaysia, Vietnam and Cambodia, as a start, through food education. Food education will materialize at first as this online knowledge platform. A second phase will see the setup of a physical school situated in Malaysia.
The Ulam school project comprises a social integration aspect as it engages actively with ethnic minorities in Malaysia, Cambodia, and Vietnam; this project shall contribute to lessen their social marginalization, as their role of edible flora’s gatekeepers will be enhanced through visible knowledge transmission to the general public.

The Ulam School project aims at creating public awareness on the benefits of eating wild greens while leveraging on connectivity and digital technologies in order to engage younger generations. Free access to knowledge, user-friendliness and, in the mid-term, multi-lingual features of the Ulam School portal shall enable a sense of proximity and rapid dissemination, ultimately producing a health-conscious and nature-caring minded new generation of consumers.
