Taguig holds youth environmental forum
Young Taguigeño nature enthusiasts from different barangays in the city trooped to the Lakeshore Hall on Oct. 8, Tuesday, making the city's first Youth Environmental Forum a success.
These eager attendees got engrossed in a series of lectures which tackled environmental laws, environmental sustainability, agriculture, air and water pollutants and how to minimize them, and waste segregation, among others.
Aside from lectures, booths such as urban gardening, Bingwitan, Let's Segre-GAME, River Wall of Enlightenment, and Sagwanan sa Dalampasigan, among others, were also set up.
The event also highlighted how Taguigeño youth can help advocate their ideas in providing solutions with timely and pressing issues about the environment.
Participants also surely did not leave the venue empty-handed with lots of environmental-friendly freebies they received from the city government. There were bayongs made from dried water hyacinth, T-shirts, ID laces, and bamboo cutlery.
