The president of the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines (CBCP), Bishop Pablo Virgilio David, has praised a new environmental project called “SUBLI” that was launched in Angeles City.
In a video played during the project’s launch at SM City Clark, David congratulated the project’s organizers, particularly noting the partnership with the Angeles City government.
SUBLI, which stands for “Subli ing Upaya, Bie, at Lugud king Indung Gabun” is a year-long information and education campaign that aims to promote reforestation and environmental conservation.
David, a native of Pampanga, praised the project for involving the indigenous Aeta communities in the reforestation efforts.
He acknowledged the president of the Abacan River and Angeles Watershed Advocacy Council Inc. (ARAW-ACI), Renato Tayag Jr. for this aspect of the project.
David said he and other bishops in the Philippines will support the SUBLI project and will follow the “Magna Carta for the environment advocacy” prepared by Pope Francis.
