The "KK!" Radio Program Features "For a Sustainable and Abundant Life—in RP" this Wed., Oct 17th, on DZRH-AM @ 6:30 p.m. (Manila Time)

Many Filipinos now work abroad and contribute significantly to the economic development of the Philippines. Yet, despite attractive work and living conditions abroad, some have opted to come back. They include some of the latest recipients of the TOWNs (The Outstanding Women in the Nations Service) Award. What made them return? Could they and others achieve a sustainable and abundant life in the Philippines?

Hear some answers on Oct. 17, 2007, Wed., 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m., as Kalikasan, Kaunlaran! (KK!) at DZRH-AM radio features a talakayan on the topic. Invited guests are Dr. Alyssa Peleo-Alampay (2007 TOWNS Awardee, Balik and Earth Scientist and UP Prof. of Geological Sciences) and David R. Newby.
