Last April 15, 2023 and May 6, 2023, ARCORES Philippines, in partnership with University of San Jose-Recoletos’ (USJ-R) Institute of Non Formal Education and Community Outreach Program (INFECOP), conducted a mangrove growing and coastal clean-up at Barangay Luyang, Carmen, Cebu.
The April 15, 2023 event was participated by 70 Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) students, 27 employees, 14 volunteers, 2 lay administrators and a religious administrator. A representative from Community Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO) and 5 representatives from Local Government Unit (LGU) of Barangay Luyang, Carmen Cebu assisted the Josenians during the event.
The May 6, 2023 event was participated by 68 Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) students, 8 employees, 10 facilitators, 2 lay administrators, and a religious administrator. Also, there were 10 representatives from the local government unit of Carmen, Cebu and CENRO who assisted USJ-R on that day.
The two environmental activities were examples of some of the university’s way of responding to the universal call of environmental stewardship in all strata of the society.
