ASEF Green Action launched in the Philippines

Project Updates


9 Sep 2013

Around 650 Filipino youth attended the ASEF Green Action launch event on 17 August 2013 in Puerto Galera, Oriental Mindoro in the Philippines. The programme included presentations by Mr Rob VAN LEEUWEN, ASEF’s Project Officer in charge of the initiative, and Mr Kim Sony MENDOZA, coordinator of the ASEF Green Action’s Philippines chapter. Their presentations inspired the participants to promote the use of more durable bags instead of plastic bags.

The event was co-organised by ASEF, the Sangguniang Kabataan (Youth Council) Provincial Federation (SKPF) and the Quezon Provincial Youth Parliament (PYP). The initiative will be followed up by SK coordinators engaging their local communities in the Province of Quezon through several awareness activities. Participants will convene in September in Lucena City to make use of the collected plastic bags in a creative way.
