UMLand Seri Austin received the prestigious Blue Ribbon Award for the efforts to stamp out smoking in public places

Malaysian Health Promotion Board (MySihat) once again recognised and gazetted Seri Austin’s Townpark as a smoke free park at the Blue Ribbon Campaign 2017 Appreciation and Recognition Night. The award was presented by Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr S. Subramaniam at Bora Ombak Marina, Putrajaya.

Earlier in 2014, MySihat recognised and accredited two out of five townparks at Seri Austin as the First Smoke Free Townpark in Iskandar Malaysia.

Chief Executive Officer cum Acting Group Director of UMLand Townships, Wong Kuen Kong (KK Wong) said as the first developer in the state to make such a move, a lot of effort and sacrifices were made to make it happen.

The Blue Ribbon Award is an international campaign introduced by the World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Office for the Western Pacific to recognise and acknowledge people and organisations working to implement and support the WHO Framework Convention provision on Article 8, protection from exposure of tobacco smoke.

Seri Austin, spread across 500 acres of freehold land, is planned with homes of quality design and affordable pricing. Together with its healthy and conducive living environment, the township offers a ‘Simply Better’ lifestyle.
