The Lighthouse Marina Resort Legacy Foundation (LMRLF), Ayala Harbor Point, SBMA Ecology Center and Subic Bay Tourism met in preparation of the International Coastal Cleanup on September 20, 2014. The objective of the International Coastal Cleanup has always been to inspire people to change their behaviour towards the environment and take action in protecting it. This year, to make this event more meaningful, the organizing committee is planning to hold an environmental summit on September that aims to unite government leaders and private business in a discussion on how we can all live in a sustainable environment.
This meeting was participated by SBMA Tourism represented by OIC Ms. Jem Camba and Ms. Rackie Delos Reyes, together with the Division Chief of SBMA Ecology Center, Ms. Lillia R. Alcazar with her colleague Ms. Rj Mallari and Ayala Harbor Point Marketing Manager Mr. Argee Gomez, and General Manager Mr. Derrick Manuel.
Mr. Zed Avecilla, the Sales and Marketing Manager of Lighthouse Marina Resort and Director of LMRLF, led the discussion and brainstormed with the group. The program entails two days that includes distinguished guest speakers and useful seminars alongside activities directed towards the leaders of the community. With the help of Ayala Harbor Point, the group aims to reach a broader audience. Mr. Avecilla emphasized that local residents and even students, need to build the right intentions for the environment. In doing so, this will also help in promoting the tourism of Zambales, especially Subic Bay as an eco-friendly destination.
By tapping influential key persons, they have the ability to bring the campaign down to the household levels, especially the youth, who plays an important role in this campaign. It all comes down to training the next generation. The youth can be honed and shaped into citizens that use the power of their voice to help care for their planet. It’s not just about creating a better world for the children, but making the children better for the world.
At the end of the day, PROBLEMS can be turned into OPPORTUNITIES. And as the famous saying goes, “Coming together is just a beginning. Keeping together is a progress and working together is success.”
