ASEAN Biodiversity Heroes, Regional Forum; Philippines
With support from the European Union and in collaboration with the Biodiversity Management Bureau of the Department of Environment and Natural resources (DENR-BMB), the ASEAN BIODIVERSITY Heroes
Regional Forum in Dusit Thani, Manila, Philippines last Sept. 4, 2018.
The second leg of the Forum featured the ASEAN Biodiversity Heroes from Cambodia, Indonesia, and the Philippines, wherein they shared their stories of conservation with students from various academic institutions in the Philippines, young professionals from different sectors, representatives from the media, participants from the ASEAN member states, non-government and government agencies among others.
Sharing the heroes stories is aimed to inspire others, especially the youth in saving the environment and for other sectors in society to emulate inspiration on how they can help in biodiversity conservation.
SSC was able to send some 16 students from the Student Council, (SC) The Scholastican (TS) and ENVISOC upon the gracious organizer, Joyce Se, a mass comm alumnae who accommodated our already late registration. Her feedback was, “Tuwang Tuwa po yung rep ng EU kanina sa mga youth participants. They are good, also the same feedback from the Youth Coord of ACB. So proud of my fellow Kulasas.
