Effectiveness of the Environmental Education Program in Enhancing Preparedness of the Vulnerable Populations in Coastal Communities of Manito, Albay

Publisher: Bicol University

Environmental education (EE) in the community seeks to empower the people to take control of the environmental issues that affect their lives. Hence a well-planned and strongly supported environmental program can help people cope with environmental problems that confront them. A descriptive-qualitative and quantitative research was conducted among the in-school-youth and out-of-school-youth of Barangay It-ba and Cawit in Manito, Albay to assess the effectiveness of the environmental education in enhancing the preparedness of the vulnerable populations in the coastal community of Manito. Data indicated that the respondents were aware of basic environmental issues and had satisfactory level of competence but were found to be more concerned with other issues of personal nature. Feedbacks from the participants and observers showed that the EE program implemented was effective in preparing the vulnerable populations for environmental disasters. Comprehension on fundamental concepts of environment and sustainability needs to be enhanced further through additional authentic activities. As the academe is a partner in educating people in the community, it is also recommended that the academic institutions should continue to collaborate with the local government in the municipality to implement more programs on environmental education and for wider dissemination. Emphasis on application or practice of what have been taught must be imperative to ensure holistic and lifelong learning.
