The Project aimed to empower and mobilize the youth to take actions that will arrest the deterioration of Laguna de Bay thus contributing significantly to the overall conservation efforts. It covered three lakeshore municipalities (Angono, Binangonan, and Pateros) and two lakeshore cities (Muntinlupa and Taguig).
What we hoped to achieve –
increase awareness of the youth of the importance of the lake in their daily lives by taking actions in their schools and communities to conserve the lake.
manage domestic waste on a pilot scale and later replicate them to help reduce pollution in the lake.
expand partnerships for lake conservation among the concerned local government units, the academe, the non-government organizations, and the industry.
On the third day of the Youth Ecological Camp, the participants spent the whole morning on a visioning and planning workshop. Pilot projects to be implemented by the campers in their respective communities were identified in this session.
