YDA supports ICC Day 2017

Youth Development Affairs Office
October 09, 2017
 
The provincial government’s Youth Development Affairs (YDA) Office organized different schools around Laguna including UP Los Baños, City College of Calamba, Laguna College of Business and Arts, Calamba Bay Walk Senior High School, Union College of Sta. Cruz, STI College-Sta. Cruz, AMA Computer College-Sta. Cruz, Philippine Women’s University, San Antonio de Padua College, Paete Science and Business College, Balian Community College, Laguna University, and Lumban Senior High School, to join the International Coastal Cleanup Day campaign on 23 September 2017 which was simultaneously held in the coastal areas of Calamba and Pakil.
 
Aside from removal of garbage during the Cleanup, the volunteers were also instructed to gather information that will be useful to governments, factories/industries and business establishments to come up with clever solutions on how to solve the marine debris problem in our coastal areas.
 
Also present during the event were Pakil municipal officials headed by Mayor Vincent Soriano; and barangay officials of Brgy. Lingga, Calamba City headed by Chairman Cesar Mamino.
 
         International Cleanup (ICC) “is the largest volunteer effort for the ocean and waterways initiated in 1986 by Ocean Conservancy, a non-government organization based in Washington, D.C., USA.  Aside from tackling one of the biggest threats facing our oceans, i.e. trash/garbage, “Cleanup also heightens environmental awareness and volunteerism that will change the behaviors that cause marine debris in the first place.”
