While in the forest, the participants were expected to take nothing but pictures,
kill nothing but time, leave nothing but footprints and bring home nothing but memories.
As a follow up to the Eco-Warriors Powwow that the Baguio Regreening Movement-Air
and Cordillera News Sgency started in 2004, this Busol project put the concept of eco-warriorship into
action and introduced the use of a camera and the world wide web as a dual tool for environmental awareness
The Busol project was participated by media personalities Ramon Dacawi, Baboo Mondonedo,
Au Alambra, Harley Palangchao, Laarni Sibayan-Ilagan, Francis Martin and Roland Rabang. Three students from
the University of the Cordilleras Environmentalist's Club represented the College and youth sector. Baguio Artist John
Lozadas, Photographers Ompong Laudencia and Ces Garcia and budding camera enthusiasts Brenden Kim Quintos and Felipe
Buencamino completed the team of Busol documenters. Miss Jonalyn Ponciano of the Philippine Information Agency manned
the secretariat at the base of the forest. A local ABS-CBN North Luzon ENG team led by Cameraman Dodie Mendillo
also joined the activity and provided coverage that was aired in north luzon.
This pioneering effort hopes to generate consciousness among residents, developers and anybody
who might be experiencing a similar scenario of gross neglect and disregard for their environs.
