World Wide Fund for Nature - Philippines (WWF-Philippines) , the global conservation organization, together with The Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation (HSBC) has formed a partnership which will increase the knowledge and awareness of students on climate change.
Together with volunteers, HSBC and WWF will be conducting interactive lectures in public schools implementing 4 unique modules: (1) climate change, (2) energy efficiency and conservation and renewable energy, (3) waste management and (4) lessons learned on climate change.
Module 1: Climate Change
This module aims to define the causes and effect of climate change and how human activity can contribute both to speeding it up or slowing it down.
Module 2: Energy Efficiency and Conservation and Renewable Energy
This module explains the benefits of conserving energy and by making energy efficient choices. The different types of renewable energy will be introduced.
Module 3: Waste Management
This module encourages students to manage wastes by practicing the 3R’s: reduce, reuse and recycle.
Module 4: Lessons Learned on Climate Change
This module serves as the culmination of the three modules. Students will have the opportunity to share what they have learned, as well as what they have done in response to this environmental issue.
EcoRescue/Firefly Brigade The fireflies have fled the city because they couldn't stand its dirty air. All of us cyclists, pedestrians, commuters, even those who ride cars who live, work and raise families in the city may suffer the same fate. We also risk disappearing like the fireflies." Why resign ourselves to this fate? We have a choice. We can fight for clean air and bring the fireflies back.
