Mining, eco concerns up at UP forum
Mining issues and environmental concerns will be discussed at the Kapihan ng Bayan sa UP, a public service project of the University of the Philippines Alumni Association (UPAA), on Oct. 23 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Luciano Hall of Ang Bahay ng Alumni on R. Magsaysay Avenue at UP Diliman, Quezon City.
The resource person will be Walter W.B. Brown, a 45-year veteran of the mining industry who has managed such corporations as Philex Mining, Semirara Coal, Surigao Consolidated Mining, Vulcan Industrial Mining, Acoje Mining and North Davao Mining. Interested parties are invited to join in the discussion.
The Kapihan, held every two months, is aimed at serving as a regular forum for constructive discussions of issues relevant to the Filipino people’s development as a nation. The UPAA believes that such public discourse is a valuable tool for guiding national leaders and the citizenry to collectively confront and resolve challenges posed by these issues.
