Youth vloggers promote environmental stewardship through regenerative techniques.
Young Negrenses are urging the public to encourage and participate in regenerative practices for environmental protection by sharing their personal experiences in vlogs that were cited in a contest aimed at recognizing their creative content.
April Joy Locsin won the grand prize in the “GeoSkwela” vlogging competition, receiving PHP20,000 for her vlog entitled Nature’s Tripper, which covered topics such as urban gardening, organic vegetable planting guides, recycling, and the natural wonders of Negros Occidental, according to a press release issued by the Energy Development Corporation (EDC) on Sunday.
Second placer Hans Cortes, who vlogged about his cycling passion and reducing air pollution, received PHP10,000; third placer Mariane Joy Balotaolo, who shared how her experience during Typhoon Sendong turned her into an eco-warrior, received PHP7,000; and Mariane Joy Bolotaolo, the People’s Choice Awardee for receiving the most Facebook votes, received PHP3,000 in GCash credit.
The vlogging competition was based on the judges’ opinion (80%) and Facebook votes (20%) from the firm’s Geo 24/7 page, according to Energy Development Corporation, which has been behind the GeoSkwela contest for several years.
The EDC reintroduced GeoSkwela 2021 on Friday during a webinar to “continue motivating the kids to be excellent stewards of the environment,” according to a press statement. Last year, it was halted due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) pandemic.
The topic for this year is “Negros Beyond Sustainability,” which urges young Negrenses to join the drive toward cleaner energy sources and, in the end, a better world.
It also underlines the significance of regenerative activities, which will benefit the world and society more.
Jamico Jamlang of The Bamboo Company and visual storyteller, National Geographic Explorer, and Youth Engaged in Wetlands co-founder Gab Mejia were among the presenters during the webinar, which drew over a hundred kids from several Negros Island schools.
EDC is the country’s leading renewable energy company and one of the world’s major geothermal producers, thanks to its Geo 24/7 campaign.
Negros Island, Luzon, and Visayas have had an uninterrupted source of clean, renewable geothermal power thanks to its 222.5-megawatt facility at Valencia, Negros Oriental.
