Advancing this year’s theme – “Aksyon Para sa Natatanging Mundo” highlights the collaborative efforts between the two agencies to provide a healthy and breathable environment for future generations. The said planting activity coincided with Proclamation No. 237, declaring the month of June as Philippine Environment Month, aimed at instilling environmental awareness and concern among the country’s various sectors.

Speaking on behalf of NPF Executive Director Gertie Duran-Batocabe, NPF Deputy Executive Director for Marketing and Operations Dr. Jovertlee C. Pudan emphasized the Foundation’s advocacy for a greener environment and nature conservation through Project Sambayanihan.

“This initiative aims to transform this 9.5-hectare property into an urban green space by planting more than 400 trees this year by promoting a participatory approach through partnerships with other government agencies,” he said.

Last March, NPF partnered with the Armed Forces of the Philippines in planting flowering trees in honor of the Philippines Women’s Month. In May, NPF teamed up with the Department of Health to promote Mental Health awareness by creating greener spaces in the Metro Manila.

An Environmental Planner, Dr. Pudan reiterated that we should plant more trees to make real change.

“When we conserve the environment today, the future generations will be able to live healthier lives,” he said.
