Young people had their unique stories to tell about their experiences during the trek to the site and the planting itself. Experiences to share: Jon Karl Estanislao, a 2nd year high school student shared that even if there is hardship in climbing the mountain, it was fun doing it. ―Pahirapan sa pag-akyat pero masaya. Ayos lang po na mahirapan kasi ginagawa po naming ito para sa kalikasan at para sa susunod na henerasyon‖, Estanislao shared Estanislao planted 4 seedlings and for him, it was enough to meet the needs of Mother Earth but still, he will continue to plant more trees. For his part, Ivan Jefferson Ogana, 12 years old, looks to the idea that planting a tree is important for the environment. ―Ang pagtatanim ng puno ay importante para sa akin upang makatulong sa ating environment. Sa panahon ngayon, laganap ang climate change na kung saan, ito ay sanhi ng global warming. Kailangan magtanim para maagapan na lumaki pa ang problema sa climate change‖, Ogana said. Ogana and Estanislao are students from Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu Parochial School in San Mateo Rizal. 49

Kahit ang daming hirap nung pag-akyat at pagbaba, nakakawala ng pagod dahil sa saying nararamdaman mo na nakapagtanim ka ng puno para sa ikakaganda n gating kalikasan‖, San Nicolas said. Estanislao, Ogana and San Nicolas had one idea on mind, to plant trees in order to help the environment and for future generations to come. Other feedbacks Gilbert Lorenzo from St. John the Baptist Parish Taytay, Rizal said that climbing the mountain has something to share to them. ―Itong pag-akyat natin ay pwedeng ihambing sa pag-akyat sa langit. Gusto nitong ipahiwatig sa ating lahat na ang pag-akyat sa langit ay hindi madali. Madami kang hirap na madadaanan at hindi isang matuwid na daan ang iyong dadaanan‖, he also said. Meanwhile, two participants who are high school students from Nuestra Senora de Aranzazu Parochial School said that they are lucky. Jeannen Manahan shared that other than the positive experience, there is also the negative part especially when she nearly collapsed during the climbing of the mountain. 50

Positive, kahit na gusto ko na mag- collapse, nagtry pa din po ako, determinado pa rin po akong makapunta sa destinasyon. Iniisip ko nalang kasi na may mga taong mas nakakaranas ng hirap kaysa sakin. The negative part naman po is yun pagod at hirap sa pag-akyat at pagbaba sa bundok.‖ For Clarice Magbuo said that they are gifted than the youngsters living in the mountain. ―Gifted po kaming mga batang nakatira sa siyudad, kasi ang mga bata ditto, araw-araw po nilang inaakyat baba ang bundok para lang pumasok sa paaralan at pumunta ng bayan. Masasabi ko pa din na ang nilakad naming kanina ay mahirap pero may katuturan‖, she said. Care Foundation headed by the director thinks that there is still hope from young people in this generation. ―There is quality participation, hindi lang tree planting kundi may consciousness reflection ang mga batang pumunta. Naemphasize ang faith dimension nila. Makikita natin ditto na sa kabuuan, ang lahat ay bukas ang loob para makapagcontribute sa kalikasan‖, Fr. Alfredo Albor said. When asked about his message to the youth participants, Fr. Garganta said, ―Sa lahat ng ating kabataan, mabuhay kayo at ipatuloy natin ang gawain na pagtatanim ng puno, bahagi ng paglingap natin sa kalikasan.‖ The Episcopal Commission on Youth together with the Executive Secretary, Fr. Conegundo Garganta hopes that may be more than the expected 1 million quotas will be planted at the end of the celebration of YOTY. 51 Garganta also said that their aim is not just to plant trees but also to take care of it.

Sa taong ito at sa susunod na taon patuloy naman yun monitoring ng punong tinanim‖, he also shared.

Ang programang ito ay nagbigay daan sa mga miyembro ng SAVE ME Movement hindi lamang upang magsaya bagkus para matutunan ang tamang pamamahala bilang mga susunod na lider, at sa pagsasakatuparan ng misyon ng organisasyon: “The education of the hearts and minds of the people to instill greater awareness of, concern for, and responsibility to the imperative of sustainable life on earth.” Nagsimula ang nasabing programa sa isang panalangin para sa kalikasan, Pambansang Awit ng Pilipinas, Vision-Mission-Goal Statement ng SAVE ME Movement, ang pagpapakilala sa isa’t isa at ang pagpapatupad ng house rules. Sinundan ito ng pagpapakilala sa guest speaker na si Edwin Chinel Monares, Doctor of Public Administration na nagtapos sa PUP, na siyang founder ng SAVE ME Movement. Ang paksa ng tinalakay ni Doc. Edwin ay may pamagat na “Transforming Leadership” na may kaugnayan sa tema ng programa. Bilang isang professor, doctor, at consultant, maganda ang kanyang mga itinuro. Pinaliwanag niya ang mga ugaling dapat na taglayin ng isang mabuting lider, mga hakbang upang makamit ang ninanais, uri ng pamamahala, at pagkakaiba ng manager sa lider. “Ang solusyon upang mabawasan ang mga problemang pangkalikasan ay ano? Edukasyon! The education of the hearts and minds of the people to instill greater awareness of, concern for, and responsibility to the imperative of sustainable life on earth.
