In celebration of Earth Day and as part of its commitment to protect the environment through mainstreaming sustainability practices, Globe has partnered with the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines in the development of an innovative digital platform dedicated for environmental education for students, the youth, teachers, and the general public. The web-based and mobile application will feature multimedia content such as animated videos, films, stories, digital modules, quizzes, and puzzles and other educational resources. It will also have an environmental footprint calculator and calendar, and interactive educational games. “Through this collaboration with WWF-Philippines, we hope to raise knowledge and awareness among the public on the significance of environmental conservation and sustainable practices that will help combat climate change, which is a global issue that Earth Day looks to address,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer and SVP for Corporate Communications. "The intensity of our environmental problems coupled with the worsening effects of climate change underscores the need for all of us to come together, and the first step to being part of the solution is through awareness and education. Our actions, big and small, are important in ensuring a livable and healthy planet for future generations," said Katherine Custodio, Executive Director, WWF-Philippines. Globe recognizes that environmental protection and preservation are the responsibility of all.
