YES-O Tour of the LLDA Green Building

April 23, 2015 - Youth for Environment in Schools Organization (YES-O) members and participants of the 3-day DENR Earth Day Youth Camp visited the LLDA Green Building. They were welcomed by Sec. Neric Acosta, Presidential Adviser for Environmental Protection and LLDA General Manager.

In his message to the students, Sec. Neric emphasized the importance of the role of the youth in caring for the environment. "The succeeding generation such as yourselves need to realize that your future depends on what you do with the environment today," he said. "The older generation like us could only leave you with a legacy of environmental stewardship, but it is all up to your generation to continue what we started and come up with your own solutions for the sustainability of the environment for you and for those who will come after you," Sec. Neric added.

The participants were comprised of 90 Grade 9 students from different schools in Metro Manila, Bulacan and Cavite, 9 PWD Youth (deaf high school students form Carmona, Cavite), and their advisers.
