Ramon Aboitiz Foundation Inc. One to Tree launches the pilot episode of its webinar series “Growth Mindset: Growing Ourselves and Growing for the Environment Webinar” in partnership with Louise Mabulo.
The webinar episode entitled “Youth in Agripreneurship” encourages the youth to explore entrepreneurial opportunities in the agriculture sector that can benefit both the environment and local communities. The webinar is scheduled for June 30 at 3:00 PM on the One to Tree Facebook Page.
With fewer young people pursuing a career path in agriculture, it is critical that the youth are involved as the next generation will be tasked with the challenge of sustainably growing food for a growing population.
The guest speaker, Louise Mabulo, is the founder of The Cacao Project, a social venture aimed to equip farmers for sustainable success. She finished Economic Development and Social Entrepreneurship at Brown University, U.S.A., and was awarded 2018 Outstanding Young Farmer, Young Champion of the Earth under United Nations Environment Programme, and strives to advance climate action and environmental stewardship while empowering the local community through her work.
This event is part of One to Tree’s celebration of Philippine Environment Month. With the theme of “Act, Restore, Sustain,” One to Tree emphasizes that individuals have the power to choose take action to restore the environment and take steps towards a sustainable lifestyle.
One to Tree advocates for climate change mitigation through the growing of native trees in partnership with local communities. Growing fruit-bearing trees such as cacao, jackfruit, and guyabano can provide additional income to growing partners as well as support food security. The growing of native trees also restores lost forest cover and conserve the Philippines’ biodiversity.
