As part of activities for this day, Fr. Gabby Lamug-Nanawa, SJ, point-person for the Environment Issues for the Jesuit Service Cambodia in Phnom Penh, came to Battambang to conduct a seminar-workshop entitled “A Second Look At Garbage” on June 2, 2012. Staff from various offices of Pet Yiey Chee Catholic compound of the Apostolic Prefecture of Battambang and the Our Lady of the Assumption Parish gathered to participate. The workshop taught attendees how to manage and dispose garbage properly.
As the organizer of the event, I thought that the seminar-workshop is worthy and fitting activity to celebrate WED. I trust that the participants understood clearly the pros and cons of garbage and its proper management. I just hope that each participant would be responsible enough to educate others in reducing, reusing, and recycling the garbage. Activities are going on for the whole year, everyone can get involved in ensuring a cleaner, greener and brighter outlook for ourselves and future generations.
