60 youth to explore Busol watershed

Environment, 4-13-2014


Sixty adolescents belonging to Youth Empowerment for Stronger Communities (YES-C) will explore Busol Watershed today as part of their three-day “Caring for the environment” workshop.

Child and Family Service Philippines, Inc. (CFSPI), sponsor of the YES-C program, has asked City Public Information Officer Ramon Dacawi, coordinator of the city’s eco-walk environmental program for children, to facilitate the experiential learning process.

YES-C was launched by the CFSPI in partnership with the United States Embassy. The project promotes co-existence of the different ethnic groups in the Philippines, particularly in Baguio. It aspires to link youth leaders with the community.

The participants are students, out-of-school youth, and children in conflict with the law.

The eco-walk program is an indigenous culture-based environmental learning process for children that allows them to relate to the environment they will eventually inherit and have to manage.

Conceptualized by Baguio journalists in 1992, eco-walk is anchored on the indigenous knowledge systems of the Cordillera tribes such as the muyong forest management of the Ifugaos, the lakun, tayan, and batangan practices in Mountain Province and the lapat system of Abra and Apayao.

The children’s program received the Global 500 Roll of Honour Award for Environmental Achievement bestowed by the United Nations Environment Programme in 2002 and won for the city the 1996 Galing Pook award as one of the country’s most outstanding local governance programs.

The children’s eco-walk experience has been used as a case study by the Asian Institute of Management and the Swedish International Development Agency.
