The GREEN ARMY Supports the DENR “Green Philippine Highways” Project.
The Filipino Bayanihan Spirit is alive and well! Rather than squander precious energy on matters that divide and exclude, people from all over the archipelago came together on the morning of August 25, 2006 to plant native trees along the sides of the 3,439.5 kilometer Pan Philippine Highway which stretches from Ilocos province in Luzon to the cities of General Santos and Zambaonga in Mindanao.
The Green Philippine Highways project was initiated by the DENR and actively supported by the Green Army, a foundation comprised of representatives from the business, NGO / civil society, the religious and government sectors dedicated to caring for the Philippine environment.
Through the generous support of Green Army’s partner — Mirant Foundation, the Green Army conducted a massive information education and awareness campaign to engage and mobilize public support for this multi-sectoral endeavor.
A Joint Project of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the Green Army
The Trees for Life: 20 million Seedlings for Planting project was launched on June 5, 2007, World Environment Day, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines by its joint proponents, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) and the Green Army Philippines Foundation. Its object is to initiate a massive reforestation of denuded watersheds and logged-over areas all over the Philippines by planting 20 million tree seedlings between July and November of this year.
