Capitol Radio Program on DZVC Tackles Environmental Issues

Leaving no stone unturned in its resolve to address the burgeoning issues and problems besetting the natural environment of the island, the Cua administration has launched its first ever environmental radio program, aiming to awaken the consciousness of every Catandunganon and rally their support for environmental programs and projects.

The program, Ikaw at ang Kalikasan, began airing Feb. 17, and will be aired regularly from 7 to 9 A.M. every Saturday. To be anchored by Forester Mar Donato of the Provincial ENRO, the two-hour program will be a mix of entertainment, general information, public service, and interaction with the listening public through Short Messaging System (SMS) and other modes. However, it will focus on local environmental issues and problems affecting the general well-being of Catandunganons.

Everyone is encouraged to share his or her thoughts and brilliant ideas on how the environment and natural resources of Catanduanes are better protected and preserved. Messages and other related concerns may be sent to cellphone number 0999-722-1607 during broadcast hours or through the program’s facebook account, Ikaw at Kalikasan. Non-government organizations and other civil society groups will also be invited in the coming days as guests and resource persons to share their insights about sustainable management of the environment and natural resources.
