Globe, Partners Start Long-Term Boracay Conservation Drive
Globe Telecom, along with its partners, has kicked off initiatives to help address environmental issues besetting the country’s top tourist draw, Boracay Island. It recently held an environmental education and leadership workshop, donated a communal septic tank, as well as provided communities with organic septic waste treatment solution, Vigormin.
Globe partnered with Save Philippines Seas to launch an environmental education and leadership workshop dubbed as Earthducation. Held on July 11-12, 2018, the program benefitted a total of 30 participants comprising teachers, student leaders, and key government officials.
Earthducation program aims to increase conservation literacy, instill appreciation for nature and the immediate environment, and teach basic and transferable skills about conservation and protecting the island’s marine biodiversity. More than just the usual classroom training, the workshop engaged the participants in creative activities and action planning for the environmental sustainability of the island.
