NAPC-YSSC visits NAMRIA
Michelle Ann Aguilar | 19 September 2016

Thirty three youth leaders from the National Anti-Poverty Commission Youth and Student Sectoral Council (NAPC-YSSC), together with the coordinators of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)-National Capital Region (NCR), visited National Mapping and Resource Information Authority (NAMRIA) main office at Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City for a guided tour on 15 September 2016.  The youth leaders came from the different regions of the country such as Cordillera Administrative Region, Calamba-Laguna-Batangas-Quezon Region, Mindoro-Marinduque-Romblon-Palawan Region, Central Luzon, Negros Island Region, Cagayan Valley Region, Caraga Administrative Region, and Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao. The tour was one of the highlights of NAPC-YSSC’s Third Council Meeting held on 14-16 September 2016, which aimed to have the youth leaders learn more about DENR advocacies and programs towards youth participation in environmental awareness.  The Council was particularly interested about having a learning activity on map appreciation and knowing about geospatial information system.
