WWF-Philippines Environmental Education Program Team Leader Obel Resurreccion explains, “Project Connect aims to synergize technology with education to nurture and inspire a fresh generation of environmental stewards. Lessons deal mostly with climate change and energy efficiency.”

SMART and WWF will pilot the program in the winning schools of the SMART-supported 2009 National Search for Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Schools.

The nationwide competition done in partnership with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources-Environment Management Bureau (DENR-EMB) aimed to recognize schools with the best practices in terms of implementing environmental programs.
