MANILA, Philippines - The advocacy group Earth Day Jam Foundation continues its efforts to drum up environmental concerns through music.
As a prelude to the much awaited Earth Day Jam, the foundation will join the upcoming Philippine Water Week and World Water Day celebration through a concert that aims to raise awareness on the various issues on water and push for the sustainable management of water resources. The World Water Day Concert is slated on March 18, 5 p.m. at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City.
Headlining the event are Lou Bonnevie, Freestyle, True Faith and Sandwich with the DLSU-CSB ComOne Ground Dance Crew alongside speakers from DENR and representatives from several LGUs, academe and the civic society.
Booths exhibit around the stage located at Glorietta 2 will take place from 10 a.m. until the mall closes. Exhibitors are headed by DENR, Manila Water Foundation, Makati Rowers’ group, The Philippine Coast Guard, LGUs and schools and the private sector.
This is the first undertaking of Earth Day Jam Foundation, Inc. for the world water day celebration after its successful staging of the Clean Air Concert last November. It will set the mood to the country’s longest-running environmental music event, Earth Day Jam, now on its 14th year and is scheduled on April 25.
Spearheaded by founder Lou Bonnevie with music director-producer Toto Gentica, this year’s Earth Day Jam will again be graced by over 100 artists and musicians, and supported by experts and environmentalists.
Lou said, “People who will take part in the event will not only be encouraged to undertake an action for the benefit of our environment but can also enjoy the show through music jamming and the best part of it is that it’s free.”
World Water Day is a special project of Earth Day Jam Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Environmental Management Bureau of DENR and Glorietta, plus the support of the Manila Water Foundation and the Dept. of Environmental Services of Makati City.
