After being named as one of the newest Ambassadors of Hero Foundation, recently ay ipinakilala naman ang singer na si Young JV bilang Ambassador ng Philippine Youth Environment Network o PhilYEN.
PhilYEN, according to Young JV, "was created as a response to the Green Generation campaign of Earth Day Network International and to United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) Tunza Strategy which seeks to 'create a global movement of young people that will actively participate in environmental changes," and to 'enhance, inspire, and enable youth involvement in sustainable development."
Young JV said that he feels great, humbled and blessed to be an Ambassador of PhilYEN and said that he can help the organization by creating awareness and bridging the gap between the youth, the government and other organizations.
We asked him, "In what ways can the public help PhilYEN?" Young JV said,
"The public can help PhilYEN by placing importance in discourse and discussion, promoting environmental citizenship and leadership among the Filipino youth and providing a platform for information sharing, discussion, collaboration, and youth participation for environmental conservation activities fulfilling an active grassroots movement and lobbying efforts for environmental policy."
