HDI conducts tree planting tribute

Davao City (2 February) -- Human Development International (HDI), in partnership with Barangay 74-A Matina and DJO Liquors, conducted a tree planting tribute last January 29 at the Shrine Hills in this city in honor of Mother Nature, as well of the "heroes of democracy" who laid their lives in the name of human freedom and volunteerism.

Among the remarkable people who were given tribute are Julia Campell, U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer killed in Banaue Rice Terraces, Josie Esto and Yah-Lydia Wonyene, UN Volunteers killed in Kabul, Afghanistan, Gene Boyd Lumawag, photojournalist killed in Jolo, and those who died in the recent Maguindanao massacre.

Also, the tree planting activity is one of the many efforts of HDI to mitigate global warming and climate change. It is under the HDI's Call to Save the Mountains of the World continuing program thrust to plant trees, as well as the organization's mission to foster human development.

For a recall, the Call to Save the Mountains of the World was made in 2002 during the celebration of the International Year of the Mountains, that has become a global movement inspired by the endorsement of the then U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, His Holiness the Dalai Lama, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, Former President Fidel Ramos and many others. In 2007 it provided inputs in the U.N. Resolution on Sustainable Mountain Development that formed the Philippines' contribution.

The tree planting tribute was participated by HDI volunteers, students, Save Shrine Hills foundation, media practitioners and other partner institutions. (PIA/E.Gilayo) [top]
