Dumaguete youth work for green campuses

Dumaguete City (14 September) -- With a core group of seven members, SolarGeneration-Pilipinas members aims to get university presidents in Dumaguete City to join the "energy revolution" and sign a memorandum of agreement pledging to be a green campus.

They kicked off last September 13-14 at the Negros Oriental State University.

Moreover, they will have photo exhibits and art performances, as well as direct dialogue with high school and college students, this coming September 17-18 at the St. Paul University-Dumaguete (SPUD) campus.

"SPUD is already practicing energy efficiency. They have an eco-swamp for solid waste and reduction management, and they include recycling as part of the curriculum for elementary students," said Razceljan Luis Salvarita, project leader for SolarGeneration-Pilipinas Southern Negros.

"We believe academic institutions play a critical role in shaping the mindset of the young generation to be environmentally-conscious," he added.

SolarGeneration-Pilipinas is an international youth environmental organization advocating climate justice education and campaigning for Energy [R]evolution "Pilipinas, Go Renewable!" It has chapters in Bacolod, Panay, Iloilo and Manila.

Salvarita said that the Philippine government aims to turn Negros into a model for renewable energy, with wind energy being explored in San Carlos City and solar panels installed in an elementary school library in Apo Island last September.

"We work for a future where clean, renewable energy is the key. Eventually, we plan to ask for the Provincial Capitol to be energy-efficient as well," he said.

For more information, please contact Michelle Eve A. de Guzman at 0906-555-8798 or Razceljan Luis Salvarita at 0916-284-5100. (PIA) [top]
