THE VISION BOARD

Change the Changes: The future of local landscapes is in your hands

It is a big province to explore
I once travelled and see the beauty I've never seen before
Millions of trees can be seen outside the window of the car
Noticed their beautiful sequence from a far
After a long time, I travelled once again
But I wasn’t able to see the beauty like it was back then

As I started studying in college
I gained environmental-related knowledge
The population increases as well as the needs
The products and services demand increases as well as businessman's greed There, I understand what happened to the beautiful sceneries
It all turned into commercial buildings, houses, agricultural land and industries

What happened to our very own province? Environmental deterioration happens Forest converted to agriculture, illegal logging ruins indigenous people's culture Climate change affecting biodiversity Losing habitat, changing patterns of their activity
Also, urbanization becomes one of the reasons why our forests experience degradation

Environmental problems cannot be reversed
But surely effects can be mitigated
Help coming from different environmental organizations
There are protection, management, and conservations
Reaching the community's participation
To restore forests and to make eco-friendly innovations
You and I can make better changes
There is no limit when it comes to ages
Planting native trees, saving endangered species
Consume only what is needed, to let all species live longer on this planet
Learn, understand, adapt and apply the knowledge
We can help the environment if we have the courage

Have you decided on the action you will make? Don't be afraid, don't hesitate
Let's altogether make an action plan
And make Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental forests sustainable in the long run
So the next time I or we travel in the province we live in
We can see the abundance of trees again
