JAD 0691

        Barangay youth and student leaders from Masbate City and Mobo, Masbate participated in the Youth Environmental Forum conducted by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) V on June 21, 2018 in Masbate City.

         Experts from the DENR V, Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) V and Environmental Management Bureau (EMB) V discussed topics such as the current state of the Philippine environment, biodiversity, geological hazards and ecological responsibilities

       The participants had the opportunity to interact and discuss ideas with their peers on the pressing environmental issues and their commitments toward environmental protection and conservation.

           One of the students shared, “I will continue to reduce, reuse and recycle. We need to reduce our energy consumption. We need to learn how to live sustainably.”

         The DENR V recognizes the need to engage the youth on worthwhile activities and instill to the public that the conservation of the environment is a shared responsibility not just the government but the whole citizenry.###
