The ANECON is a three-day convention on climate change that targets student leaders involved in environmental initiatives or student council members from various colleges and universities around the Philippines. The conference would entail interaction between experts and participants, team building and outdoor activities, workshops, presentations, and resolution-building.
The Ateneo National Environmental Conference (ANECON) is envisioned to promote awareness of the various consequences posed by climate change and to integrate theoretical foundations and practical solutions into the role of the Filipino youth in addressing issues regarding climate change.
In this light, the ANECON seeks to formulate resolutions through (1) factual grounding and analyses from renowned experts in the field of environment; (2) interactive discussions and experiential learning; and (3) commitment building efforts embedded on actionable and result-oriented activities that the participant will undertake after the conference.
