The SUBLI 2023 school caravan is now in full swing.
The school caravan is part of the whole-year drive dubbed as Subli Ing Upaya, Bie, at Lugud king Indung Gabun (SUBLI) 2023 Integrated Environmental Campaign, a joint project of the Angeles City local government and the Abacan River and Angeles Watershed Advocacy Council, Inc.
SUBLI 2023 includes public events, media information drives, and a caravan to 50 public and private schools in this city set from February 3 to August 30.
The caravan kicked-off at the Angeles City National Trade School last February 3. At least 150 selected students from the junior and senior high school participated in the activity that featured film showing of winning SUBLI documentaries, social media engagements, and a brief forum on reforestation and watershed conservation.
Chito Arceo Jr., president of ARAW Youth, said that the school caravan is the most important component of SUBLI 2023 because the main goal of the campaign is to create a wider awareness among the youth on the importance of water security, watershed conservation, and climate change action.
ARAW Youth organized student leaders and youth influencers to lead the watershed talks during the caravan. Two of the known personalities who volunteered as ARAW Youth ambassadors are Daniella Sangalang of GNN TV and Joy Diwa of PEP TV. Both of them are professional journalists and anchors.
The second stop of the caravan is Cutcut Elementary School. Last February 15, 100 students joined the activities. The SUBLI team will continue to tour other schools recommended by the Department of Education (DepEd) Angeles City until the end of August.
Renato S. Tayag Jr., ARAW-ACI president, commended the Angeles City local government led by Mayor Carmelo “Pogi” G. Lazatin Jr. and DepEd Angeles City for their unwavering commitment to the shared advocacy on water security, environmental protection and the rehabilitation of the Angeles watershed in Brgy.
