BUTUAN CITY — The Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas (KBP) and the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) will launch the 2012 BroadcasTREEing Project, which is slated on September 15, 2012 in 30 KBP chapters in the country.
The Tree Planting activity is pursuant to a memorandum of agreement executed between KBP and DILG last April 27, 2012 during KBP’s 38th Founding Anniversary at the Crown Regency Hotel in Makati. The agreement is to continue the tree-planting program initiated by KBP focused at the affected areas in the country by deforestation, and it seeks a unified effort with DILG.
To mitigate the adverse effects of global warming and climate change, the 2012 BroadcasTREEing Project will enjoin the widest involvement and participation of local government units (LGUs) especially in the barangay level, Office of the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning, Philippine Information Agency, tri-media, government agencies, and the private sector/civil society organizations.
