After 6 years (2015 to 2019) of organising Penang Green Idol (PGI), PGC is bringing back the champions and participants from each year to take part in the Penang Green Idol Tournament (PGIT) 2021 virtually.


With the theme “Take the Lead”, this tournament aims to encourage these young leaders to continue to be role models that will inspire the future generation as well as the key to a more sustainable Penang State.


PGIT’s objectives:

- To reunite all the Penang Green Idols and inspire the young generation’s participation in environmental causes.


- To encourage the youth in active thinking and innovation.


- To provide a platform for youth to speak up their opinions on environmental issues.


- To instill the understanding of youth’s role in ensuring the sustainability of environmental development as well as protection.

There will be 3 rounds of competitions in PGIT: Environmental Quiz, Debate and Storytelling performance. After months of planning and preparation, the first round of PGIT kick-started on the 30th of October and the second and third round of competitions were conducted on the 13th and 20th of November respectively. All competitions were conducted virtually while the winner announcement will be made on the 27th of November on a Facebook Live session.
