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.
