33 join youth camp

Thirty-three young leaders from Negros Island joined the Binhi Youth Camp-Negros of the Energy Development Corporation in Valencia town, Negros Oriental recently.

This is a three-day boot-camp on geothermal energy and Binhi forest restoration, organized by the EDC in its Southern Negros Geothermal Project in Valencia, to instil pride in the participants in the abundance of geothermal energy in the island.

Eighteen delegates come from the Negros Oriental State University, Saint Paul University Dumaguete, Foundation University, STI-Dumaguete, Asian College of Science and Technology, Metro Dumaguete College, and Silliman University, all in Negros Oriental, while 15 are from the University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos, University of St. La Salle, Bago City College, Bacolod City College, La Consolacion College-Bacolod, Visayan Maritime Academy Global College, Colegio San Agustin-Bacolod, John B. Lacson Colleges Foundation-Bacolod, STI-West Negros University, and Technological University of the Philippines-Visayas.

A tour of the company's 50-megawatt Nasulo geothermal power plant when they learned about the operations side, brought them face-to-face with the clean, renewable, uninterrupted power source of Negros and its neighboring provinces. They also learned why geothermal is 24/7, and how EDC sustains its resource.

The BYC was run by EDC employee-volunteers and Binhi youth champions from the 2014-2016 batches who continue to support the company in its community partnerships projects.* Rene Genove
