|After a long wait, our environmental magazine has finally come to life.|
It has been our dream to release a paper that would encourage you to think and to act on the various issues concerning our environment. Atenews, as we know, is unswerving in its goal to impart awareness and share a sense of responsibility on any agenda that has to be taken by us, Ateneans.
We are glad to bring you positive news and features articles that involve the Ateneo community in saving Mindanao and Mother Earth as a whole.
As you browse the pages inside, you’ll find more interesting writings on our entertainment section, science and technology, health and cartoons.
Also, we give you fresh insights and opinions on matters that confront our local society. Among these are the pressing debates on Davao’s coal power plant, the prevailing energy crisis in our island, the country’s on-hand mechanism in advocating protection for aquatic, terrestrial, and aerial wildlife, and other vital subjects.
We also provide you a brighter side to the story regarding the remarkable catastrophe which happened last June 29 that put an end to some of our countrymen’s lives and have caused hardships to our fellow Davaoenos.
I am proud to say that our staff had toiled so much for you to have this paper. I am grateful for the invaluable support of the generous people who made this issue possible. At the end, I hope that Atenews could effectively persuade you to become a responsible steward.
