The Department of the Interior and Local Government Region 3 staff together with the Provincial Offices of Nueva Ecija and Pampanga joined the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) in the conduct of its Broadcastreeing Tree Planting Activity last October 13, 2012.
The activity is in line with the National Greening Program which aims to counter the adverse effects of global warming and climate change through the direct participation of the community in activities such as tree planting and seminars which raise awareness and encourages the involvement of the people.
The affair was held simultaneously in two places; (1) Megadike, Bacolor, Pampanga & (2) Palayan City, Nueva Ecija which was participated by various agencies such as BFP, DENR, Phil. Army, BJMP, PNP and DILG totaling an attendance of more than 1,000 personnel.
The event started at 6:30am with a parade led by the BFP, PNP & Phil. Army followed by the tree planting activity proper. Afterwards, the participants ended the day with a snack provided by the DENR, photos taken to remember the event and a new planted seedling which will serve as a symbol of hope and stewardship towards the environment.
