T he multi-media broadcast program Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! has been featuring noteworthy initiatives on the environment and sustainable development since its inception in October 2006. In June 2010, KK! features more of such initiatives with some of the latest technologies now available in the Philippines.  These initiatives aim to protect the environment as well as offer green-business opportunities. 


The special seminar conducted jointly by EARTH Institute Asia and Flor’s Garden’s in the EARTH School, Flor’s Garden, Antipolo City, last June 19, 2010, brought together organizations and individuals with some of the latest noteworthy initiatives.

G uests are: Regina Filart, vice president, Battery Doctors Philippines; Raymond Rubia, trainor-consultant, Agri-Aqua Network, International (AANI) and an organic farming practitioner, and Bert Peeters, co-manager, Cabiokid Foundation, a proponent of permaculture. Dr. Cora Claudio, president of the EARTH Institute Asia, Inc., will moderate the discussion. 

Ms. Filart will introduce a new technology in the Philippines for recycling ordinary batteries.

B. Peeters will talk about the application of permaculture to integrate organic agriculture, waste management and recycling, and sustainable community development, as demonstrated in their project site in Cabiao, Nueva Ecija.
