Inspiring initiatives

By

One of the most interesting gifts I received last Christmas was a set of books and a DVD on Saving the Planet from Barbs Fortunato (a former student in UP Cebu High School).

This Asian series profiles six successful initiatives that combine knowledge, skills and passion to create cleaner and healthier environment through local action. The stories were identified from a regional competition, and produced by TVE Asia and Pacific in cooperation with local organizations and film crews. Filmed in Cambodia, India, Laos, Nepal, The Philippines and Thailand, and produced in 2009, each story runs for fifteen minutes.

Ignored crisis

By

They range from rehabilitation “czar” Panfilo Lacon skidding into his old cop role to buttressing coastal forests like mangroves, beyond Leyte Gulf, throughout the country.
