“This area is the site of great revolutions and of history and this is history in the making,” says Fr. Leonilo Mangussad, Rector of the EDSA Shrine during the Ecumenical Mass before the start of the conference. It was indeed history because young scouts as young as 10, students and veteran environmentalists join hands to raise awareness for the earth. The young scouts together with their leaders endure the morning heat just to tell everyone that we should protect our planet because they don’t want to inherit an uninhabitable planet.
