Academe steps up for environment cause

Davao City (24 October) -- The Ateneo Grade School Community Association (AGSCA) will be implementing a Coastal Clean-Up Project at the Pawikan Sanctuary in Punta Dumalag, Davao City on Saturday, October 24, 2009. The project is spearheaded by the Level Six Officers headed by Priscilla N. Razon.

The Coastal Clean-Up Project is one of the major projects of the Ateneo Grade School Level Six parents, teachers and students in cooperation with Barangay Matina Aplaya, Punta Dumalag officials and councilors led by Barangay Chairman, Hon. Jimmy D. Poliquit. A total of 99 students with their parents and 12 Ateneo teachers will be participating in the coastal clean up. Around 250 individuals are expected to participate in the event.

Aside from cleaning the coastline, the participants will also be planting 500 Mangrove seedlings to help rejuvenate the surrounding ecosystems in the coastal area of Punta Dumalag.

The objective of the project is to help raise awareness among young people about the importance of caring for the environment and protecting our ecosystem. With the recent flooding and other calamities that have occurred in Luzon, the AGSCA would like to highlight the need to act now to save the environment, to reduce global warming, and to help local communities to be more pro-active in preparing for natural calamities.

The other officers spearheading the project are Jonas Piore, vice president; Karen Oreta, secretary; Alice Tiu, assistant secretary; Lani Lee, treasurer; Grace Maestre, assistant treasurer; Nina Borromeo, auditor; Marichu Cobol, assistant auditor, and Yvette Sunga, PRO. (pr/AGSCA) [top]
