The CLEAR Youth Ecological Camp for the youth of Cardona was held at the Kuhala Bay Resort in Cardona, Rizal on 22 – 24 November 2017. The Eco-Camp aimed to develop young stewards for the environment specifically that of the Laguna de Bay region. It was conducted in line with CLEAR’s long-term commitment to help increase the awareness of 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. Environmental lectures and group dynamics were designed to foster a deeper appreciation and understanding of Laguna de Bay. It was highlighted by field exposure trip which include a boat ride in the lake for water quality monitoring.
