DENR LEADS THE CELEBRATION OF ENVIRONMENT MONTH IN JUNE

Presidential Proclamation No. 237, s. 1988 declares June of every year as Philippine Environment Month. In line with this, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) leads the celebration anchored on this year’s theme “Beat Air Pollution.”

DENR 10 lined-up activities aim to heighten the environmental protection consciousness of the people and generate greater participation and integration of efforts in the conservation and management of environment.

Novel to this year’s celebration is the month-long Environmental Advocacy Contest to be participated in by DENR 10 Division Offices which will portray and gauge the depth of understanding, appreciation and commitment of its employees towards the environment thru an advocacy exhibit.

In partnership with the Philippine Eagle Foundation, DENR 10 will observe the week-long celebration of Philippine Eagle Week starting on June 4 until June 10. Different interactive Communication, Education and Public Awareness (CEPA) will be conducted simultaneously such as photo exhibit and public screening of “Bird Of Prey” in SM CDO Downtown Premier and community-CEPA and public screening of “To Save Our Eagle” in Brgy. Guilang-guilang, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.

A Video Documentation Contest unveiling the DENR programs and projects relative to this year’s theme will take place. The submission of final material will be on June 14 at exactly 08:00 AM.

Part of this year’s celebration is making available the various services from Philippine National Police (License-to-Own-Firearms processing), Philippine Coast Guard (medical and dental mission), Philippine Statistics Authority (Philippine National ID processing), PhilHealth (identification cards processing), Human Nature (beauty consultation services) as well as massage relaxation, all these for the convenience and accessibility of DENR 10 employees. Entailing the slogan “Isang Linggong Pagmamahal para sa Empleyadong Marangal,” this serves as a consolation to the continuing support and exemplary efforts extended by them who likewise maintained a public service clothed with discipline, excellence, nobility and responsibility.

Anchored on the idea of promoting camaraderie, unity and sportsmanship among DENR 10 employees, a sportsfest will take place which includes basketball, volleyball, table tennis and darts.

To display their support thru intense and energetic dancing, cheers and yells, a cheerdance competition will happen on June 19 which will be participated in by PENR offices, EMB 10, MGB 10 and regional office.

A parade of beauty and exhibition of intelligence will be unfolded during the search for Ms. Kalikasan 2019 on June 27.

Information, Education and Communication (IEC) on the celebration will be undertaken through multi-media and interpersonal approach. The activities include Environmental Quiz Show on June 21 for students, Environmental Quiz Bee for DENR 10 employees on June 25 and Environmental Symposium on June 26 at Libertad National High School and Initao National High School, all in the province of Misamis Oriental. DENR 10 will forward its support to Green Film Festival to be conducted simultaneously in different schools on June 20. Environment-related films will be shown to the students.

A contest on recycling wastes will test the creativity of DENR 10 personnel in a Scrap Digester Contest. This is to boost the attitude of the employees to re-use plastics and other scrap materials.

To encourage everyone to participate in promoting a healthier ecosystem for the Filipino people through rehabilitation and greening of our environment, Arbor Day Celebration every 25th of June will be observed thru a mangrove planting in Brgy. Molugan and Brgy. Taytay, all in the city of El Salvador.

DENR 10 SPEARHEADS THE “CHALLENGE FOR CHANGE PROGRAM: CDO LIMPYO DAGAT CONTEST”

Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR 10) spearheads the “Challenge for Change Program (CCP): CDO Limpyo Dagat Contest” as part of its continuing effort to intensify the environmental protection consciousness of the people and generate greater participation in the conservation and management of environment, particularly the Macajalar Bay. CCP is a social media campaign to encourage people to keep the environment clean and free from trashes.

DENR 10 escalates the said campaign in a contest format in relation to this year’s Month of the Ocean theme “Free the Sea from Marine Debris.” The agency encourages all coastal barangays of this city to undertake regular clean-up activities to save the Macajalar Bay. Also, to promote a sustainable partnership among the City Local Government Unit (LGU), private sectors, academe, religious institutions and relevant National Government Agencies.

The contest will be conducted through regular clean-up activities along the coastal barangays in this city such as Bulua, Bayabas, Bonbon, Macabalan, Puntod, Lapasan, Gusa, Cugman, Tablon, Agusan, Puerto and Bugo. It is open to all local stakeholders willing to clean, mobilize coastal communities and improve the coastal areas. A group of not less than 15 members, coined as CCP Cooperators, may select any of the coastal barangays mentioned and lead the conduct of regular clean-up activities therein. Clean-up sites will be monitored twice every month from June to September 2019 by the assigned judging committee.

The awarding of winners will be on September 21, 2019 in consonance to the celebration of International Coastal Clean-up Day (Presidential Proclamation No. 470.) CCP Cooperators will be judged according to the cleanliness of the coastal barangays they selected, innovations undertaken by them to mobilize the coastal communities and consistency of cleaning efforts through the attendance of members and regular clean-up activities conducted.

DENR 10 encourages the coastal residents and other local stakeholders to be responsible in keeping and throwing their trashes in order to maintain the aesthetic beauty of our ocean and thereby protect the marine life ecosystem. #TayoAngKalikasan RSCIS MR No. 06-157-2019
