Environment Secretary Ramon J. P. Paje (inset) receives a “tree seedling of change” from the youth delegation during the opening ceremony of the 3rd Asia Pacific Forestry Week held Feb. 22-26, 2016 in Clark Freeport Zone in Pampanga.  The handover of tree seedlings by the school children, who have always been viewed as powerful agents of change, complements the event’s theme, “Growing our Future,” which calls for the integration of forestry with the other facets of sustainable development.###
