PIA Press Release

Camiguin SK leaders to spearhead environmental management project

by Jorie C. Valcorza

Cagayan de Oro City (5 November) -- TO empower the youth, the Provincial Government of Camiguin took the initiative of tapping the Sangguniang Kabaataan (SK) members to spearhead priority-focused projects in their respective barangays.

The program is dubbed as "Brigada sa Kabataan (SK-Green Brigade)," a priority development intervention of the provincial government, in collaboration with the municipal governments and the Coastal Resource Management Project (CRMP).

The SK-Green Brigade program is on its pre-implementation phase and will sustainably implemented in a span of 3 years.

It focuses on projects and activities such as clean and green, solid waste management, coastal and other environmental management towards the development of economic enterprise in communities and schools.

At present, trainings and workshops on the provincial level are set this month, requiring local youth leaders to undergo technical and leadership trainings to become effective facilitators and resource persons.

With these interventions, local leaders hope to train and develop the SK members to become dynamic and empowered partners in implementing community-based projects and activities.

As a governing body of the youth assembly or Katipunan ng Kabataan of every barangay, they mobilized the SK members to head the youth in helping the government build a healthy and economically developed community.

According to Felicisimo M. Gomez, provincial planning and development coordinator, the project seeks to divert idle time of the youth, which is mostly focused on leisure, to productive economic activities and encourage their participation in environmental protection and conservation and other significant community activities.

Each of the primary stakeholders--provincial governments, municipal governments and the cooperating agencies and organizations, will provide technical, financial and in-kind assistance to the program.

Other stakeholders of the SK-Green Brigade are the Department of Education, Department of Interior and Local Government, Department of Science and Technology, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, and the Liga ng mga Barangays-Camiguin Chapter. (PIA-MisOrOccCam) [top]
