Poster - EndDanger


Manila (December, 2012) – An art exhibit and music fest fundraiser for Save Philippine Seas’ Pawikan
Watchers program opens on January 19, 2013 at the Conspiracy Garden Café, Quezon City.

EndDanger, which features mixed media artworks from the group Artists for Nature and performances
from Flying Ipis, Extrapolation, and other music bands, calls attention to the growing problem of animal
endangerment in the Philippines and encourages the community to get involved in conservation and
protection efforts.

Although gifted with a rich and biologically diverse ecosystem, from lush forests to a vibrant marine life,
our country’s natural resources have significantly dwindled over time. Animal species, in particular, are
under increasing threat from habitat destruction, pollution and commercial exploitation. Many are now
in the verge of extinction.

World Water Day 2012 : Regret and Resolve

I didn't know it was World Water Day yesterday until I read yesterday's paper today. Regrets.

World water day 2012 save water

It's not so bad as one I had when I came home one day and found my faucet running. Forgetfullness caused me accidental, unintentional neglect. I wasted water. I was guilty. From then on, I became more cautious to make sure all taps and even power consumers are off when we leave home. Resolve. We find ways to solve our problems and avoid new ones.

World Water Days aren't holidays of funfare. They are there to remind us of our responsibilities.We SHOULD and we, actually, CAN do something.

The UN cites a few examples of what we can do: "follow a healthier, sustainable diet; consume less water-intensive products; reduce the scandalous food wastage: 30% of the food produced worldwide is never eaten and the water used to produce it is definitively lost!produce more food, of better quality, with less water."

A green earth cannot be possible without water. Learn Green. Love Green. Live Green.

VERTICAL CITIES CONFERENCE

Marcus Evans

Large Scale International up Coming Conference
Date: 5th to 7th March 2010
Venue: InterContinental Grand Stanford, Hong Kong

 

For details of the Conference follow this link:  http://www.verticalcities-lse.com

General Inquiries: Esther Wong - estherw@marcusevanskl.com

Overview of the Event from www.verticalcities-lse.com 

The epitome of Vertical Cities is an integration of buildings within a city life with important sociocultural implications. Vertical Cities is a collaboration of typical high-rise forms which includes retail malls and multi-use towers that stack and mix commercial, retail, and residential functions.

In a congested city, the main concerns are designing of sustainable high density built environments where the problems of urban sprawl, traffic congestion and pollution have threatened the prospects of biodiversity, greenery, livability and general well-being of the inhabitants. The solution to cope with high density cities is to build upwards. In the past, many countries have deployed tall buildings as a way to solve urban problems, while at the same time creating national identity for the country through a powerful skyline. Vertical cities are now a sought-after urban habitat in upcoming cities. Vertical cities are seen as the only solution to achieving economies of scale and to address issues pertaining to space, high land prices and density challenges.
