The purpose of this proposal is to develop a new framework that maps Orang Asli indigenous knowledge of how they preserve and sustain their environment and use it on personel, societal and national level to conserve natural resources for present and future generations. This is because urban living generates carbon footprints and other damaging and hazardous effects such as global warming and river pollution. It is well known that Orang Asli preserved and manage their natural resources and the ecosystems surrounding them for their survival (Hong, 1987). However, the documentation and publication of how Orang Asli utilized 'green technology' is not well known or very scarce. In fact, none of the national policies has documented or studied Orang Asli indigenous knowledge of how they conserve and use their surrounding for sustainability of the environment (Eyong, 2007). This study uses interviews, observations and artifacts as the research methods to build a framework that looks at how they fertilize their crops without chemicals, use barks, trees, plants, fruits and flowers as medicine and identify food for consumption etc (Altieri, 2001).The framework can be as a guide towards the national policy of making Malaysia a greener place as stipulated in 11th Malaysia Pelan 2016-2020. In addition, the framework can also be used by other teacher educators to generate learning modules to be used with their pre-service teachers and to enhance awareness, knowledge and capacity of all levels toward green growth in line with the national policy.
