Pilipinas Shell (Shell) is now celebrating 105 years of successful business operation in the Philippines. Shell renews its commitment to deliver more and cleaner energy to help meet growing needs and find ways to use energy more efficiently.
To #MakeTheFuture of energy that is both environmentally and socially responsible, Shell engaged its stakeholders recently thru an activity that involved no less the future shareholders – the kids.
“Everything that we are doing today impacts on future generations, and it is interesting to see what tomorrow’s decision-makers and leaders know about energy, how they’re affected and what they think must happen to ensure that Shell can help make the future sustainable for them,” says Cesar Romero, country chairman of Shell companies in the Philippines.
The young attendees were among the first to see the #MakeTheFuture campaign video which highlights inspiring stories of kids who benefit from ongoing programs like Access to Energy, Shell’s program to power off-grid communities using renewable energy.
Among those who attended the Kids #MaketheFuture event were children of celebrities like Nathan Linsangan, son of Camille Prats-Yambao; Micaela Pingris, daughter of Danica Sotto-Pingris; and Eia Tan, daughter of Sherilyn Reyes-Tan. Together with other kids from the Trumpets Playshop, The School of Academics and Arts, Eton International School, and children of invited media, they responded to and asked questions during kid-friendly discussions held to jumpstart their energy education.
