International Community Outreach at the Baseco Mangrove Planting Area

Manila, Philippines | 29 September 2023 – The Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Baseco supported the event by bringing volunteers to help plant over 30 mangrove trees to preserve the ecosystem and ensure a sustainable future for the Philippines’ youth.


The Institute of Business Excellence (IBE) and Lyceum of the Philippines University (LPU) have united in a commendable effort for international community outreach at the Baseco Mangrove Planting Area. This collaborative venture not only underscores the commitment of these institutions to academic excellence but also highlights their dedication to environmental sustainability and community development. The event received crucial support from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) Baseco, further emphasizing the importance of public-private partnerships in fostering ecological initiatives.

The participation of DENR Baseco, along with enthusiastic volunteers, played a pivotal role in the success of the initiative. Together, they engaged in the planting of over 30 mangrove trees, a vital ecological contribution to the preservation of the delicate mangrove ecosystem. Mangroves serve as natural buffers against coastal erosion, protect marine life, and contribute to biodiversity conservation. The active involvement of volunteers, guided by the expertise of DENR Baseco, not only addressed immediate environmental concerns but also laid the groundwork for a sustainable future for the Philippines' youth.

This collaborative mangrove planting effort serves as a powerful symbol of the positive impact that can be achieved when academic institutions, environmental agencies, and local communities come together. It reflects a shared vision for environmental stewardship, community engagement, and the cultivation of a sense of responsibility towards the Philippines' natural heritage. The event not only contributes to the well-being of the immediate ecosystem but also instills a sense of environmental consciousness and responsibility among the participants, fostering a deeper connection between academic institutions and the communities they serve.
