Authority of Lapu Lapu City representative.
Our goal for this activity
is making connections between what we do as individuals, families,
communities, and nations – and the impact on the Earth.
At the end, it will be a day
of fun and lots of discoveries and learning.
The proposed activities
start with an awakening to Ecology in general and develop specifically
critical judgment about eco-tourism.
Before each educational
eco-tour to Olango Island, it is recommended that the students get some
sensitivity trainings at school.
Our main partner for this
activity is the Abraham’s Children Montessori School in Cebu city.
