Rachelle Ybañez of DENR EMB 7 discussed the agency’s efforts for Environmental Education for Sustainable Development which is outlined in RA 9512. RA 9512, the Environmental Education and Awareness Act is intended to impose the value of conservation, protection, and the rehabilitation of natural resources to the general public. The goal is to develop sustainable communities in schools, cities, and companies and provide education to both the formal and informal sectors. An important aspect of the program is to integrate climate change in LGU’s CLUPs and other plans with the involvement of the academe and the private sector.
