To regularly conduct an Ecological Camp, dubbed as Kilos Kabataan Para sa Lawa, is part of the plan strategy of CLEAR in its campaign to educate the community, particularly the youth, on the need to conserve and protect Laguna de Bay. The ecological camp aims to ensure the sustainable conservation and protection of Laguna de Bay and to foster a deeper sense of appreciation and commitment especially among the lakeshore communities. CLEAR, the Conservation of Laguna de Bay’s Environment and Resources, is the tripartite partnership of Society for the Conservation of Philippine Wetlands, Inc., Laguna Lake Development Authority and Unilever Philippines. more about CLEAR >>
The CLEAR Youth Ecological Camp for the youth of Siniloan, which aimed to develop young stewards for the environment specifically that of the Laguna de Bay region, was held at the August-Inn Resort in Siniloan, Laguna on 02 – 04 December 2009. This was conducted by CLEAR in partnership with the Municipal Government of Siniloan.
The 3-day eco-camp was participated by twenty-six (26) high school students from various schools in the municipality: 5 from Colegio de Sta. Isabel of Laguna, 5 from Siniloan National High School, 2 from San Lorenzo Ruiz Montessori, 4 from St. Michael School of Siniloan, 5 from the Laboratory High School of Laguna State Polytechnic University, and 5 from San Luis National Agro-Industrial High School.
The Eco-Camp aimed to help increase the awareness of the people in the lakeshore communities regarding lake conservation which eventually would contribute to catalyzing changes in the behavior towards appreciating the value of Laguna de Bay and its environs.
