Best efforts to combat climate change were initiated in August between CTU Argao and the Energy Development Corporation(EDC) through the tree planting commitment signing and inauguration of the Bio Park in the university’s southern campus.
Campus Director Juanita Pinote made the immediate response to Sen. Loren Legarda’s challenge of preserving the environment jokingly but seriously put at the 50th anniversary of the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges (PASUCs).
The senator delivered the decisive note on promoting the Philippine agenda through her strategic goal of preventing global warming.
CTU President Rosein A. Ancheta Jr., who also believed in the same principle, joined hands with CTU Argao, realizing the need to breathe clean air from the natural producers is as necessary as breathing life to the next generation.
The tree planting activity indeed put across the message for the community to contemplate.
Years hence, the trees would become substantially effective in bringing a healthy environment for the residents and tourists who may have known of Argao’s forest, where the campus’ BS in Forestry major students usually visit to further their knowledge on the elements supporting the ecosystem. RM
