RC3_2862

HARI Foundation, Inc. (HFI) and Haribon Foundation introduce Eco-Teaching via the HARI EcoVan to representatives of Hyundai Motor Company Korea, Global Competitiveness Economic Forum, and South Korean NGOs.

 

February 19, 2014, Angat, Bulacan. HARI Foundation, Inc. (HFI), the corporate social responsibility (CSR) arm of Hyundai Asia Resources, Inc. (HARI), in partnership with Haribon Foundation introduced the HARI EcoVan to delegates of the Global Competitiveness Economic Forum (GCEF), and representatives of Hyundai Motor Company and South Korean non-government organizations.

 

This activity, held at the Hyundai Center for Green Innovation (HGCI) in Angat, Bulacan, was part of the Hyundai CSR Action Learning Program, a knowledge sharing campaign that highlights HFI’s years of socio-civic efforts in the areas of education, health, social entrepreneurship, community development, women and youth empowerment, and environmental sustainability.

The HARI EcoVan, the country’s first mobile, eco-classroom, represents HFI and Haribon’s shared drive to inspire and educate the Filipino youth to take the lead in being responsible stewards of the country’s natural resources.

 

HFI and Haribon representatives demonstrated to the Korean delegation how the best-selling multi-purpose Hyundai H-100 van was customized into a fully-equipped mobile classroom that conducts lectures and holds film showings and exhibits about the country’s wealth in biodiversity.

 

Three HARI Eco-vans currently tour the country’s major islands, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, to bring a highly-interactive eco-learning experience to grade school students from the cities to some of the remotest areas of the country.

 

Forty Hyundai scholars from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines (PUP) have pledged to become part-time lecturers in the future journeys of the HARI EcoVan.

 

“HARI’s mission is to create a positive difference in the country. The HARI EcoVan will be one of our avenues to educate our youth to learn and value ecological sustainability, not only for them and their families, but also for the generations to come,” said HFI President Ma. Fe Perez-Agudo.
