Romblon State Uni holds Sanrokan Conference 2015

•June 24, 2015 • Leave a Comment

sanrokanAs part of its centennial celebration, RSU conducted a 3-day environmental studies and climate change conference held at the foot of the majestic Mt Guiting-guiting of Sibuyan Island.

I was fortunate to join for the said event as a paper presenter and had a quick visit to my hometown of San Fernando. It was a short notice but as usual I prepared my presentation under pressure. My paper entitled “Rehabilitation of the Pasig River: Creating Resilient Communities” focused on the rehabilitation and development efforts of the national government thru the Pasig River Rehabilitation Commission (PRR) to revive the river system and to bring significant improvement in the water quality and wellbeing of the riverside communities. It also highlights the major strategies and approached employed by the Commission particularly address the following concerns: easement recovery, estero management, flood control, ferry service, water quality and public awareness/advocacy.

There were interesting topics presented during the conference.  For instance, studies focused on the effect of the illumination (light) in the gut characteristics of seahorses in sea cages;  growth, survival and ingestion rate of juvenile seahorses in varied light intensities;  characterization of different cassava in the Province of Romblon for climate change adaptation; identification of crab species located in Sibuyan Island; and many others.  Aside from the researchers of the RSU, other presenters came from other state universities from Sorsogon and Mindoro.

A Filipino national scientist 2008 was the key speaker of the said conference. Her name is Dr Lourdes Cruz from the University of the Philippines-Diliman Campus. Dr Cruz has made significant contributions to biochemical and molecular structures and properties of many types of conotoxins from Philippine marine snails.

The 2015 SANROKAN CONFERENCE featured four symposia held in different venues in Romblon with the following topics and dates:

  • Environment and Climate Change (Magdiwang, Sibuyan Island, May 1-3, 2015)
  • Culture and History (Romblon Island, May 5-7, 2015)
  • Archaeology and Museum Studies (Banton Island, May 9-11, 2015)
  • Language and Education (Odiongan, Tablas Island, May 13-15, 2015)

Balik Probinsya (Going back to my home province, Romblon)

THIS IS MY NEW HOME… for the next 15 years! Joining this state university at the middle of 2015 was a big decision I made as a 360 turn-around of my professional career. After 38 years of residency in Metro Manila, I finally decided to go back to my own province, Romblon which is located at the heart of the Philippines, where the marble thrives and the majestic Mt Guitiing-Guiing stands tall! This is a rare opportunity to bring back the skills, knowledge and experience I gained from both locally and abroad to my very own province. This is where I could inspire more young minds that they will also be the future movers of change and regional development – for a better resilient Philippines.
