Ondoy. Habagat. Yolanda. The Philippines is one of the countries most affected by extreme weather in the recent years.
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” said Chinese Philosopher Lao-tzu. So is the race to protect, respect, and oversee care for Mother Earth.
On its second year Earth Day Network Philippines is hosting an advocacy run to increase awareness on environmental responsibility and raise funds for their continuing projects and programs. This includes Watershed Restoration and Forest Conservation, Re-Charge Tacloban, Zero Basura Olympics, and Mini Carbon Olympics. Earth Day is celebrated worldwide every 22nd of April.
A media briefing was held last March 31 at Merrell Concept Store, Market! Market. Earth Day Network Philippines Chairman Dr. Metodio Palaypay and Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Director for Strategic Communication and Initiatives Service Jesus Enrico Moises Salazar addressed the press and bloggers.
“The future of humanity is everyone’s responsibility. This is why we never get tired of telling people that Earth Day must be everyday, everywhere, for everyone.” – Dr. Palaypay
