In spite of the inclement weather condition, twenty-five (25) youth environmental warriors
residing within the Zamboanga Peninsula actively participated and enjoyed the WINNING
ADVOCATES FOR VERDANT EARTH (WAVE) Camp on May 12-13, 2022 at Camp
Limbaga, Pasonanca, Zamboanga City.

The Wave Camp 2022 is a collaborative effort with the DENR Zamboanga Peninsula and I
CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE aimed to empower and enlighten emerging youth
environmental leaders as well as to catalyze environmental education through strengthening
our partnership with the youth sector.

Experts in the different fields of environmental education especially on the 7 environmental
laws and principles, Biodiversity, Climate Change, Youth for Environmental Advocacy, Project
Management and Resource Mobilization, Public Speaking and Project Pitching, and Technical
Writing were present during the said activity.

Aside from the lectures, the campers enjoyed many games and physical activities that amplify
their learnings on environmental protection and preservation.
The Environmental Management Bureau IX together with its partners would continue to
conduct engaging, environmental youth activities that would produce a strong network of youth
leaders dedicated to environmental stewardship.
