Welcome to Rakan KL

This is a people’s movement and you can read the details about us under the ‘About’ heading above.

Rakan KL was launched in Kuala Lumpur on 31 August 2012 and we had a two days festival with lots of street activities and informative talks and discussions.

We aim at promoting the preservation of history and heritage (intangible and tangible) of Kuala Lumpur;

We are assessing the impact of big development projects such as the Menara Warisan and MRT line on the lives of local residents;

We are promoting the voices of civil societies and local residents in development-related decisions;

We like to engage the authorities  (DBKL, Ministry of Federal Territories and Urban Well-Being, etc) on development issues; and

We would be suggesting improvements to land-use, urban planning and heritage policies in order to make Kuala Lumpur a more livable and holistic city which does not neglect its historic roots.
