Also at hand are speakers from environmental NGO organizations and volunteers from the civic society
You’re especially invited to drop by early and check out the recyclables’ Fair adjacent to the performance area. It’s easy to say “Save the Earth.” It’s another to actually do that, and that’s what this hot party’s all about! At the jam, your support by enlisting in any of the DENR’s activities and those of the other NGOs is just one of the causes for celebration. Better still, to bring out a placard to shout out your environmental sentiments. Make some noise and bring some good cheer. Party at the BGC , if you love Mother Earth as much as you should!
