2010-2011 BC's environmental actions

Given the varied prevailing and emerging environmental issues in the Asia-Pacific region which is both environment and climate sensitive, the 2010 Peace Ambassadors decided to set up BC environmental stations in individual countries for the year 2010-11. Considering that APCC ambassadors spread across the Asia-Pacific region are matured over two decades of experience, it is anticipated the ambassadors can now make bold moves and initiatives that can leave substantial impacts. Thus, it is in line with APCC objectives of children becoming ‘Global citizens’ and ensuring a safe earth for ‘Coexistence’. 

Each BC set up an environmental action station where BC members had designed proactive measures through small activities to address environmental program relevant to their country. Some BCs also liaised with governmental or NGO bodies to initiate such activities.
