Now on its 26th year, the University of the Philippines Circle of Landscape Architecture Students (UPCLAS) is the Philippines’ first organization for Landscape Architecture students, based at the College of Architecture in the University of the Philippines – Diliman campus. UPCLAS was established in 1989 and has been promoting the degree program, Bachelor of Landscape Architecture, for 26 years now, through our projects that stimulate the creative mind in designing a better future for the environment around us, and by upholding the organization’s objectives and beliefs in the society. The organization constitutes Landscape Architecture, Architecture, and Interior Design students who are united in striving for academic excellence and environmental sustainability.
ENVIRUNMENT 2.0: Winning is Green! will be held this coming 4:00pm, on April 17, 2016 (Sunday) at the Academic Oval, UP Diliman – Quezon City, and Palma Hall (AS) Steps as the starting point. EnviRUNment is a fun run event for a cause. Last 2014, the first ENVIRUNMENT was aimed for environmental awareness and social responsibility.
These aims were actualized through a proposed tree-planting event and monetary donations to the victims of Yolanda, one of the strongest typhoons that devastated the Philippines. Around 300 participants from and outside the university came together to endorse fitness and to foster a heightened sense of environmental awareness. It was during this affair that the participants celebrated UPCLAS’ constant drive towards the resolution of environmental and social disputes.
On its second wave at 2016, ENVIRUNMENT shall be renewed, but with the same aim for environmental awareness and social responsibility. With its new tagline, “Winning is Green”, it campaigns that as individuals, our victories are not only in the form of sports and other competitions, but also in the form of environmental and social contribution. All proceeds from ENVIRUNMENT 2.0: Winning is Green shall go to our beneficiary, the outreach and tree-planting event located in the Ipo Watershed, Norzagaray, Bulacan, “OUTREECH: Reaching Out to the Environment and the Society”, which will occur again this year. It is headed by UPCLAS, in cooperation with the University of the Philippines Mountaineers (UPM). Achieving all this will be another step in the constant chase for change.
