Bago HS students act to protect environment

Bago City (13 September) -- Bago City government found allies among high school students in its climate change mitigation and adaptation program.

Close to a 100 high school students recently accepted the challenge and enlisted their names in the city's call to bring the climate change issue down to the grassroots level and seek solutions from community members.

In a workshop sponsored by Bago City government, DepEd and the Philippine Information Agency, students from eight public and two private schools gave inputs on the best ways of addressing the adverse effects of climate change.

Among the suggested activities to be implemented are: putting up a mobile patrol, community library, conducting remedial teaching, symposia, tree and mangrove planting, holding echo seminars and holding barangay environment week.

Ramon Torres National High School (RTNHS)- Dulao was cited for having the best action plan along with RTNHS-Taloc for having a plan that covered many important aspects.

Through their school representatives, students pledged their commitment and cooperation symbolized by accepting a seedling that they will plant back in their respective schools.

Mayor Ramon Torres graced the activity with other city officials including Councilor Loreto Cauntoy, Human Resource Officer Tricia Matti, Supervising Environment Specialist Vicente Mesias, Engr. Jocelyn Go and PIO Cleovel Villanueva. (PIA-LOL) [top]
