The Sill iman University Student Government Environment Committee (SUSG EnviroCom) is calling for participants to their weekly Coastal Clean-Up Challenge.
According to Julmar Joseph Misa, chair of SUSG EnviroCom, the challenge is a wake-up call for barangay residents and government officials regarding the growing water pollution problem.
The activity is in line with the committee’s main project for this semester entitled, “MaSEAkap at MaSEApag na Batang Dagat.”
The project aims to promote ocean conservation, environmental protection, and community empowerment.
The committee has already spent four Saturdays at Silliman Beach, Escaño Beach and El Oriente Beach.
Their next stop is the Rizal Boulevard this Saturday, Aug. 12, from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.
The Committee on Student Organization will give 5,000 points to participating academic and non-academic organizations from Silliman University for every three representatives and 1,000 points for a single representative.
Misa said the activity is open to everyone, including those that are not Sillimanians.
The challenge started last July 8 and will end on Sept. 16.
