|Multi-stakeholder confab for youth and environment project held|
|Mar 05, 2012|
A Multi-Stakeholders' Orientation Conference was held on March 3 at USLS for a project that will benefit youth leaders in Bago City.
The project entitled “Rafael M. Salas Parks and Natures Center: Youth Commitment for Sustainable Development” is a collaboration of the Institute for Negros Development (IND) of the University of St. La Salle, the Rafael Salas Nature Center Foundation Inc. and the United Nations Population Fund.
IND Director Rhoderick Samonte presented the project to stakeholders who include various government agency officials and student leaders from youth sectors of Bago City.
The project aims to mobilize at least 50 youth leaders, age 12-20, of Bago City and its neighboring communities and to train and organize them to develop their capacities to conduct sustainable development projects in their own communities with a strong sense of social, ecological and global responsibility.
“It is hoped that this project will also link leaders with the wider youth community working together for more programs,” Samonte said.
The conference was held to give the stakeholders a clear picture of the project, to scope for issues, concerns and directions from the stakeholders and to identify points of convergence in working together for youth and sustainable development.
Among the attendees were Bago City Administrator Tricia Matti, Bago City Tourism Officer Rose Mina, RMSPNC Park Manager Simon Gonzaga and Senior Environment Management Specialist of CENRO-Bago Vicente Mesias, PEMO environment specialist Luisa Tutor and PPDO Assistant Officer Lawrence Ledesma.
