Sustainable Cities & Sustainable Schools

DENR Assistant Secretary Corazon Davis presented the ASEAN Framework for Environmentally Sustainable Cities (ESC) and Eco-schools. ESC are cities or urban areas that are environmentally sustainable while meeting the social and economic needs of the people as outlined in the ASCC Blueprint (2009 – 2015). The ESC Award aims to make ASEAN cities environmentally sustainable by recognizing exemplary efforts and sharing best indigenous practices to keep cities clean, green and liveable.

The National Environmental Awareness and Education Act, alongside with the ASEAN Environmental Education Action Plan (2014-2018) promotes eco-schools. The Philippines’ search for sustainable and eco-friendly schools is a way to popularize environmental schools. The ASEAN eco-schools award provides recognition in the region.
