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.

“Love our Oceans” thus advocates for and educates more people, especially the youth, on the importance of saving the Philippines’ rich marine resources.  In partnership with the Outlooke Pointe Foundation, the PTC-CSJ Foundation published "On Tatay's Boat," a children's story book that teaches the importance of caring for our seas.  Copies of the book have been distributed in public schools and coastal communities nationwide.

Since 2016, PTC-CSJ, in partnership with WWF-Philippines,  has implemented the Environmental Education (EE) Project in public elementary schools in Muntinlupa City.  The EE Project aims to increase the knowledge and awareness of teachers and students on environmental issues focused on environmental conservation, climate change and sustainable lifestyle.

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.
