ITDI-DOST Conducts Waste Management Seminar
To address the alarming environmental dilemma in our country, two representatives from Industrial and Technology Development Institute under Department of Science and Technology (ITDI-DOST) carried out a seminar with the topic “Instilling Environmental Awareness through Waste Minimization and Waste Management among the Learning Institutions and Communities” at the National-U Amphitheater, last September 21.
Engr. Rochelle Retamar and Engr. Angelica Celicious, both environmental scientists, discussed the proper handling and lessening of our wastes- be it residential, commercial or institutional waste. They also discussed and gave some tips and ideas on the three Rs - reduce, re-use and recycle, the practice of energy conservation and the effects of climate change and global warming in our daily lives.
The said seminar is a part of the project generated by ITDI-DOST in partnership with ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. that aims to educate universities around University Belt Consortium wherein National University is also a member.
