Celebrating 6th Water World Day and Tree Planting Activity of Surallah Water District (SWD) last September 8, 2017 at Barangay Colongulo, Surallah, South Cotabato
ROAD to 2040 is an environmental movement of Surallah Water District (SWD) in Celebrating 6th Water World Day and it aims to restore forest reserves specifically at Patom Subwatershed using native tree species such narra, apitong, lauan and many others and to sustain provision of ecological goods and services by year 2040 through an informed and engaged people. It provides an opportunity for all partners to come together and help bring back our natural forests.
Surallah Water District (SWD) currently working with different clusters throughout the Municipality of Surallah and TLDFI as they working toward restoring rainforests with an 80% average survival rate. These clusters, composed of LGUs, academic institutions, government agencies, NGOs, POs and individuals, are committed to rainforestation and ensuring that ecological benefits from forests are enjoyed by community of today, and tomorrow, and that our wildlife — our natural heritage will live on.
The Tree Planting Activity aims to raise awareness to the society in the importance of planting and saving trees, express our concern to the environment, and diminish the unfavorable effects of climate change. It also helps us build a strong relationship and camaraderie with each other by helping hand in hand in preserving the ecology.
Tree planting is one way of showing our efforts in making this world a much better place to live in. Without the trees, nothing will keep us safe from the typhoons, we could not eat nutritious fruits and vegetables, and definitely we could not breathe fresh air.
Build today, plant for tomorrow. Let’s save the nature together!
