     EARTH DAY 2015

For the 45th year celebration of Earth Day, the Earthsavers has organized a convergence of performance and media arts for a broadcast mass outreach of a climate change education paradigm in line with the Earth Day objectives to underscore the value of a grassroots call to action to rally world leaders to forge the global agreement to prevent the irreversible threshold of 2° Celsius signaling the catastrophic implications of climate change. On the oldest radio station DZRH, the Climate Education Week Broadcast Program begins with poetic traditional debate about man-made pollution causing climate change written by Professor Tomas Ongoco, in cooperation with Alpha Phi Beta Fraternity featuring former senators, now Manila Hotel President Joey Lina, and Climate Change Commissioner Heherson Alvarez. With Makata sa Cellphone, Frank Rivera and Santiago City Councilor, Hexilon Alvarez.

Earth Day observance in the Philippines was initiated in 1990 by Senator Heherson T. Alvarez, then Chairman of the Committee on Environment, 25 years ago and founding member of the Global Legislators for a Balanced Environment (GLOBE) with US Senator Al Gore.

 

On April 4, 1990, the Philippines officially joined the community of nations in celebrating International Earth Week and International Earth Day through the adoption of Senate Resolution 97, which was introduced by Senator Heherson Alvarez.

 

The Washington-based Earth Day Network founder and chair Denis Hayes particularly took notice of how the Philippines was able to harness the energies of Congress to give its full support to the activities lined-up for Earth Day and with leadership on legislation.
