Environmental Awareness and Conservation
The Philippines is one of the world’s top ten most biologically diverse countries. However, low public awareness on environmental issues and threats has regrettably contributed to the decline of our country’s natural resources.
In 2021, PTC-CSJ and WWF-Philippines launched the Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) Program. ESD is geared toward enabling schools and communities to identify and act in ways to achieve a more sustainable future by maintaining the balance of three pillars – the economy, society and environment.
The partnership with WWF involves Teachers’ Training to help them integrate environmental issues in their lesson plans, as well as sessions with the learners themselves in PTC-CSJ’s partner-Schools in Muntinlupa.
In coordination with the Department of Education – Schools Division Office of Muntinlupa, PTC-CSJ and WWF also provide an opportunity for trained teachers to conduct demo teaching.
