Report on Biosphere Reserves for Environmental and Economic Security (BREES) Youth for Sustainable Development Awards in the Philippines

The activity aims to strengthen a hands-on approach to environmental sustainability in school and communities. It encourages young people to make significant, tangible, and positive changes toward a better environment in their local biosphere reserves by supporting small scale projects related to environmental awareness and education; recycling; sustainable agriculture and fisheries; community-based forest management; community waste management and clean energy. This exciting initiative is an integral part of BREES (Biosphere Reserves for Environmental and Economic Security) flagship programme, a long term (+7 years) regional climate change and poverty alleviation programme.
