National Tree Planting Day
This year, 2013, the ENO through the UNESCO National Commission of the Philippines invites the country to join the A Global Call to Celebrate UN Peace Day, Now 10th Time.
The theme for the celebration is "Education for Peace". The United Nations (UN) will examine the role of education in fostering global citizenship. Teaching children how to read, write and count is not enough. Education has to cultivate mutual respect for others and the morale with which the people lives, and has to help citizens forge more just, inclusive and peaceful societies.
As a highlight of the celebration, the National Tree Planting Day: Education for Peace that will involve students, teachers and non-teaching personnel at the schools, regional and division offices, shall be conducted on September 20, 2013. This activity is also in support to Executive Order No. 26, otherwise known as the National Greening Program (NGP).
All regional and division NGP coordinators are enjoined to coordinate with the Local Environment and Natural Resources Offices and/or Agricultural Offices for the provision of seedlings/saplings and guidance to designated planting sites in the area.
Enclosed are the Guidelines for the Tree Planting Activity and the forms that will be accomplished for submission to the regional office, copy furnished the Health and Nutrition Center, 4th Floor Dorm E, DepEd Complex, Meralco Avenue, Pasig City.
