Filipino law requires all students to plant 10 trees in order to graduate

Women BD Desk:

Students in the Philippines must plant at least 10 trees in order to graduate from elementary school, high school, and college, CNN reported.

  • The initiative comes from a bill passed by the Philippine Congress earlier last month.
  • The trees can be planted in either forests, mangroves, reserves, urban areas, abandoned mining sites, or in indigenous territory, according to¬†the bill.
  • Its goal is to help promote “inter-generational responsibility” over environmental protection.
