MGB-R02 Youth Engagements

This 6th Summer Youth Camp was held at Foundation University in Dumaguete, Negros Oriental. Together with the DENR and EMB Regional Youth Desk Officers, AO IV Leilani Talattad, the designated MGB-R02 YDO          attended the camp last April 29 to May 02, 2008.  Like in the past summer camps, the activity was participated in by school children in the elementary level, students from the secondary and tertiary levels, Sangguniang           Kabataan, science teachers, local government officials among others. This is national activity jointly headed by the DENR-Special Concerns Office, DepEp-Center for Students and Co-Curricular Affairs, National Youth Commission, and the Kabataang Sama-Samang Maglingkod, Inc.  This year’s theme is “Climate Change: Warming up the Youth for Global Environmental Activism”.

As mandated by the department, the activity has an annual budget of 5% of the total MOOE less mandatories and contingencies. So far, a number of 70 schools  in the region were visited by the desk officers. Part of the visit is the monitoring of their existing environment related activities and information dissemination campaign of the department’s activities which may be of help in their schools and the communities.  Courtesy calls were also made in the    local government units for the involvement of the Sangguniang Kabataan. To acknowledge their efforts in actively supporting the environment-related activities of the department, certificates of recognition and appreciation were given to participating schools in the region. These schools or individuals were chosen and awarded for being an active and/or supportive environmentalist/s in the youth sector.   These were given during the culminating program of the department in celebration of the Environment Month.
