DepEd, UNESCO unveil latest EFA Global Monitoring Report

The Department of Education (DepEd) and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) presented the results of the 2013-2014 Education for All (EFA) Global Monitoring Report Tuesday.

“We are talking about education not just as Filipinos but as global citizens as well,” Education Secretary Br. Armin Luistro FSC said, adding that education for all shouldn’t be an issue of competition. Luistro also  highlighted DepEd’s goal that “no Filipino youth shall be left behind in basic education.”

Ed dela Torre, co-chair of EFA committee, said that while milestones were important in education, it was also crucial to “sustain the momentum” in reaching the EFA goals.

Asiana supports UNESCO World Heritage sites with solar lighting

As part of its global corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts, multi-awarded Korean carrier Asiana Airlines (OZ) has initiated its solar street lighting project for UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Vietnam.  Asiana embarked on the project in cooperation with the Korean National Commission and installed 40 solar powered street lamps across the Hoi An Riverside Square in Da Nang.

Compared to the original incandescent lamps used in the historic town, the new solar powered street lamps will significantly lower carbon emissions in the area.  The environment-friendly installation is seen to be equivalent to planting 82 pine trees.

Guests led by Sam Koo Park, Kumho Asiana Chairman and CEO (5th from L, center) and Young-Doo Yoon, Asiana Airlines President and CEO (3rd from L) together with officials and guests from the Vietnam government and Korean embassy applaud the new solar street lighting for the UNESCO site.
