NEC Philippines, Inc. (“NEC Philippines”) and NEC Telecom Software Philippines (NSP) participated in the 11th NEC World Children’s Nature Club, held in Baguio City, Philippines, 18-20 March 2017.
The 3-day program, focusing on environmental education and arts, was joined by 14 children from the Cordillera Region, the northern region of the Philippines.
The program consisted of a mix of indoor and outdoor activities, with NEC Philippines presenting a short lecture at the start of the program to provide the children with information about their local environment and show how its business helps to ensure the safety and security of communities. Other activities, such as outdoor games relating to the environment, allowed the children to gain more awareness about their surroundings.
NEC members assisted in organizing a video conference for the children where they interacted with participants from other locations, including China, Taiwan, Japan, and Indonesia. The video conference also taught the children about the uniqueness of other countries and their cultures by exchanging experiences andlessons learned from the program.
