Pilipinas Shell Launches Its Kids #MaketheFuture of Energy Campaign

Last June 20, 2019, we attended the "KIDS #makethefuture" event organized by Shell Philippines at the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City Taguig. It was a fun-filled day of activities and we learned how Pilipinas Shell makes the future for and with the next generation through energy transitions.

As it celebrates 105 years of 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.

The young attendees were among the first to see the #MakeTheFuture campaign video that showed how important energy is. Its highlights include inspiring stories of kids who benefit from this program. This is super important especially to those who live in far-flung places in the Philippines that don't have energy!

"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 con help make the future sustainable for them," says Cesar Romero, country chairman of Shell companies in the Philippines.

By holding the Kids #MakeTheFuture event, Shell intends to create an opportunity to promote energy consciousness and education among youngsters, as well as to invite them to join the discussion on improving and making the future of energy.

Romero was joined by Managing Director of Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. (SPEX) Don Paulino and Country Health Manager Dr. Rose Rivera in providing insights on the many ways that everyone, including kids, use and expend energy, and what Shell does to provide them the energy that they need.

Among those who attended the Kids #MaketheFuture event were children of celebrities like Nathan Linsangan, son of Camille Pratts; Micaela, daughter of Danica Sotto-Pingris; and Eio, 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.

"We really want to empower kids. They have so much potential to create things, and all we need to do is give them the right resources and opportunities," says Romero.

"By showing them that we can put renewable energy to good use, like powering up communities, we hope to help them realize that they can make the future of energy clean, sustainable and possible for everyone," he adds.

As a mom, I think we need more campaigns likes this, which aims to promote energy consciousness and education among kids. After all, they are the future stakeholders of our country.
