DENR Central Visayas through the Regional Strategic Communication and Initiatives Group (RSCIG) appoint new ENR Ambassadors from Cebu Technological University Main Campus. Three (3) Bachelor of Science in Development Communication third year students namely Kimberly Ann Culango, Ivy P. Cervantes and Mary Karl Romeo were selected to become young environmental leaders in their respective organizations or school.
“We are very thankful for the opportunity given to us, to be part of the department’s information, education and communication (IEC) campaign on environmental awareness to protect mother Earth. It was a challenge to discuss the role of the youth towards the environment and being new ENR ambassadors during the DENR-7 and DYAR “Kapartner ng Bayan” segment. As catalyst of change, we plan to start in school, create a social media page to promote environmental campaign and invite more students to join us. Our advocacy is to stop using single use plastic and encourage the use of tote bag in shopping. As we said, “Small actions can make a big difference”.
The Environment and Natural Resources Ambassadors will be a force multiplier of the DENR-7 in changing people’s behavior towards environmental stewardship by maximizing the use of different social media platform, to promote national awareness on the role of natural resources in the economic growth and the importance of environmental conservation and ecological balance towards a sustainable national development.
DENR recognizes the vital role of our youth in protecting our natural resources and the environment, the ENR ambassador project is the tool to transform the potential of our youth in promoting the importance of our ecosystems.
The Regional Strategic Communication and Initiatives Group (RSCIG) and our Youth Desk Officers (YDOs) are ready to train guide and develop the skills of the youth and identify qualified ENR ambassadors. For more information, interested youth groups/organizations, SK officials and even out of school youth may contact or message our official Facebook page: DENR Central Visayas.
