CHMSU joins 7th PMPI solidarity march, raises environmental issues

CHMSU students from the Fortune Towne and Talisay campuses joined the Philippines Misereor Partnership, Inc. (PMPI)  solidarity march from Rizal Elementary School to Bacolod City Public Plaza on March 6.

Hosted by the PMPI Negros Chapter, the marchers carried banners and placards bearing messages of environmental conservation, sustainable living, and respect for nature’s rights under the theme “Transformative Work on Environment and Nature’s Rights Through the Years.” 

The march aims to raise local environmental issues of Negros Island. Climate change, anti-plastic ordinances, and the rights of nature were the central call of the said march.  

The CHMSU community joined hands with various faith-based organizations, development organizations, non-profit groups, civil society organizations, the Catholic Church, sectarian and nonsectarian academic institutions, and other educational institutions in a peaceful march.

The students were accompanied by Director Rhoderick Samonte of the Center for Internationalization and External Relations.

The solidarity march is just one of many initiatives that CHMSU plans to undertake in its mission to champion the rights of nature. 
The university is also developing various programs and partnerships aimed at promoting environmental awareness and action among its students and the wider community. (by John Paul Alito)
