DENR 10 field offices will also conduct tree growing activities, coastal clean-up, lecture on biodiversity and climate change and Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Campaign as part of the month-long Earth Day celebration.

Earth Day was first celebrated in 1970 to focus on the unique environmental challenges such as climate change, global warming and other critical environmental issues.

DENR 10 INFORMATION OFFICERS GEAR UP FOR BETTER ONLINE PRESENCE

To keep up with the demands of time and fast-paced information sharing, Information Officers from the Provincial/ Community Environment and Natural Resources Offices in Region 10 participated in a Learning Event on Social Media and Infographics on October 25-27, 2017 in Cagayan de Oro City.

The 3-day Learning Event also aimed to enable Information Officers to be updated on social media and technology trends and be more engaged in the online community which will be very useful in communicating DENR campaigns, projects and programs.

Resource speakers from the Environmental Management Bureau gave lectures on the priority programs of the DENR, the Ecological Solid Waste Management (RA 9003) and the Philippine Clean Air Act (RA 8749). Climate Change and Carbon Footprint Inventory lectures were also conducted.

Communications Development Officer Rosita Lubguban and Information Officer Marlowe Paragas from the Regional Office echoed their learning on Social Media for Development. They discussed on the significant use of social media in promoting campaigns and propaganda especially for government information dissemination.

Sigrid Joy T. General gave a lecture on Infographics. She discussed its importance and uses. A workshop was also conducted with Information Officers preparing their own Infographics.

The participants learned the advantages of using a picture-based IEC material as a better tool in capturing the attention of the youth and the online community. Infographics are also used in presenting processes in a simpler, condensed and creative manner.

Assistant Regional Director for Technical Services Lawyer Florenda Lamason-Yap encouraged the Information Officers to always do their best on their job. She said designations are proof of trust and confidence given to them as public employees.
