Environmental Studies Institute

 

The Environmental Studies Institute (ESI) is a pioneer in school-based education and advocacy for the environment. It traces its roots in the early 70s when environmental issues were integrated into the curriculum of Maryknoll College. Since then, various innovations have led to the integration of environmental education in all academic units of Miriam College. It has also led to partnerships with both government and non-government organizations for environmental advocacy and with communities for environmental protection and community-based resource management.

 

OUR VISION

We envision the development of citizens and leaders, respectful of the sacredness of creation, who will work for an ecologically sound environment, equitable economic growth, and people empowerment as pillars of sustainable development.

 

WHAT WE DO

  • Provide the Miriam College community and the public with opportunities to acquire the knowledge, values, attitudes, commitment, and skills needed to protect and improve the environment

  • Foster awareness of and concern for the environment, and catalyze collective involvement in environmental advocacy
