DENR 6 celebrates 28th Year Anniversary through a Family Day

THE DENR 6 Family Day is an annual event in observance of the agency’s founding anniversary. The DENR was created by virtue of Executive Order 192 which was signed in 1987 by then President Corazon C. Aquino. Middle photo shows ARD Jesse L.

             Some things are best savored by sharing meaningful bonding moments.

             Both employees and officials of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in Region 6 celebrated the agency’s 28th Year through a Family Day on June 10. To create a festive mood, the Tyangge sa DENR was set-up at the regional office courtyard which will continue until June 30, 2015.

       The Tyangge sa DENR sells various native goodies and manned by the different office representatives. Some employees had a happy time choosing what snacks to eat during break time.

           At lunchtime, groups huddled to share foods with some who opted to go for a boodle fight kind of lunch. The atmosphere was filled with fun as employees shared not only food but laughter and joy. Family Day is the time of the year at the DENR office when everyone took a “breather” and engaged themselves in group activities.

        It has been 28 years of dedicated service to the people. Despite the odds, DENR employees in Region 6 and in the other regions have continued to fulfill its mandate of ensuring proper conservation, management, development and use of the country’s environment and natural resources

           June is a special month in the DENR calendar as it is observed as the Environment Month. Family Day is a part of the month-long celebration. Come June 25, various DENR offices in the region will drumbeat the Arbor Day with series of tree planting activities. For the regional office, a tree planting will be done at the Iloilo Circumferential Road.

             DENR employees will have more Family Days to come. Once in a year it feels good to remember that we belong to a family – the DENR Family.

Press Statement of Secretary Roy A. Cimatu



I am pleased, honored and humbled by the vote of the Commission on Appointments confirming my nomination. I am excited about this opportunity to continue serving the public as Secretary of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

The challenge for me now is to prove that President Rodrigo Duterte and the honorable members of the CA have made the right decision in placing their trust and confidence in my abilities to lead the DENR towards fulfilling the broad mandate entrusted to it.

The confirmation of my ad interim appointment as DENR Secretary will allow me to continue to institute reforms, and pursue programs and projects that would truly protect the environment and improve people's lives. This gives me enough inspiration to carry out the seemingly gargantuan tasks of protecting the environment and ensuring sustainable use of the country's rich natural resources in the face of climate change and dwindling natural wealth of the nation.

Rest assured that under my watch, the DENR will push for people-centered agenda in pursuit of environmental protection and sustainable development. It is high time that every Filipino, regardless of status in life, should have equal access to the benefits of clean environment and sustainable natural resources. ###
