Life Is Here – JCI Davao, Inc., Philippines

Setting an ambitious goal to protect life in all its levels, members of JCI Davao set out on a mission to create an environmental program that supports the local global goals through the preservation and protection of sea turtles and their environment. Through this pilot program, JCI Davao members were treated to an experience about LIFE, standing for: “Looking for Inner Fulfillment by saving our Environment”. This program teaches members how to sustainably manage and protect marine and coastal ecosystems and involved more than 150 young active citizens from JCI, MOHSG52 and Navy volunteers. Creating new partnerships and focusing on the global goals, this project is a wonderful example of taking action at the local level to inspire change around the world. This project won Best Local Global Goals Project at the 2020 JCI Asia and the Pacific Conference.
