    BEYOND THE SPANISH COLONIAL CAPITALISM AND EVANGELISM, TOWARDS VALUING THE LEGACY OF HERITAGE CHURCHES IN THE PHILIPPINES [caption id="attachment_647" align="alignnone" width="300"] Click image to enlarge[/caption] ABSTRACT:400 years ago, the Spanish Conquistadores colonized the Philippines. They played a major role in the development of our towns and cities, through the Laws of the Indies of 1573. These were entre pot for new economic and socio growth but most importantly the spread of Christianity. Today we are the only country where 80% of our 100,000,000 population are Catholics with 300 heritage churches built from 1565 to 1898. This paper is about how the Spanish Colonizers and the Augustinians Missionaries who pioneered the Christian evangelization particularly in Manila, Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur in the northwest area of the archipelago of the Luzon island and in Iloilo, in the Visayas, Philippines, transformed the natives into their own image as well as the religion they propagated were as magnanimous as the churches we have in our midst. How the Spanish colonizers respected the environment, provided tangible legacy and landscapes; and how the Filipinos were empowered through evangelism of Christian Faith till this new millennium. Recently, we were immensely blessed by Pope Francis, current Pope of the Catholic Church, with his visit to the country and witnessed by the world. Despite the tropical location of the Philippines that subjects it to seasonal tropical cyclones, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and droughts, with frequent disasters due to our geographical location and the effects of global climate change, we remain ever as strong in our faith, hope and love for God Almighty whose will be done to save us, as promised then, now and beyond this millennium. Keywords : Heritage Conservation, Sustainable Development, Roman Catholic Religion. Click here for Presentation Slides Arch. Mynn Alfonsomamynnp@yahoo.com

    STORM SURGE [caption id="attachment_643" align="alignnone" width="300"] Click image to enlarge[/caption] ABSTRACT: The Philippines is considered as one of the most vulnerable countries to climate change. With impacts including extreme weather  events, climate change has been a constant reality that many Filipinos have had to face. Far from being isolated, the recent Philippines typhoon Yolanda followed extraordinary meteorological events that are becoming more frequent and increasingly severe.  Storm Surge  has greatly affected our fellowmen living in coastal rural  poor communities  that lack awareness on proper disaster preparedness measures to take as well as in urban areas particularly Manila bay area.How does this storm surge occur? How does climate change affect the occurrence of this storm surge?   Understanding  this, we  become aware of the damaging effects it could incur and be prepared with it .  We come up with findings and recommendations on what certain basic measures, design  and construction should we take into consideration on building  resilient  in times of natural disaster. Click here for Presentation Slides Mr. Gerardo Santiago IIIgerardosantiagoiii25@gmail.com

    BIOLOGICAL MAGNIFICATION: THE TRAGEDY OF PLASTIC WASTE [caption id="attachment_634" align="alignnone" width="300"] Click to enlarge image[/caption] ABSTRACT: Our civilization has a long history of using durable materials for our purposes. Out of this need was invented the modern plastic, which is used into many different kinds of products. When we talk of plastic, we almost always equate it to the plastic bags that can be seen floating in all kinds of bodies of water, ending into the great oceans of our planet. What is unknown to us is the effect of all these plastic products, not just plastic bags that ended up as waste. When we eat our seafood, we do not think of the things these have ingested in their lifetime before they were caught for our table. Eating food with toxic contaminants can affect us in a process called biological magnification. Whatever an organism has incorporated in its system, whether plants or animal sources, can affect the next link in the food chain. Plastic is one such contaminant, and the sources are numerous, not just the floating plastic bags. This presentation deals with plastic waste, and summarizes the many sources of plastic waste and how these could get into the food we eat and affect all of us in a way only a few have ever thought of. It also aims to plastic waste, and summarizes the many sources of plastic waste and how these could get into the food we eat and affect all of us in a way only a few have ever thought of. It also aims to create awareness on our solid waste and its management in order to protect our environment and our health. Click here for Presentation Slides EnP.
