The event was broadcast live by media partner GMA and, thanks to telecomm partner PLDT, attendees were able to live tweet and blog about the event in real time. During this first-of-its-kind event, viewers were invited to send their questions to America's top diplomat by sending them in via Facebook, Twitter, and Skype.? By: U.S. Embassy, Manila Philippines FSLF Youth Bam L. Azores was fortunate to be chosen to join the special event with Sec. Clinton. He was one of four winners in the Chikahan Tayo Challenge organized by the U.S. Embassy in Manila on facebook. Bam's winning entry: Never too young... Hi! I?m Bam,14 years old. I think, young people should be encouraged to volunteer specially for the environment. I have been a volunteer with the Friends of the Seven Lakes Foundation Youth in Laguna since I was in first grade. We do activities like treeplanting, lakeshore clean-up, conduct eco-camps for younger kids and collect recyclables. Last month I shared what young people do to protect Mother Earth at the UNEP TUNZA International Childrens Conference on the Environment in Bandung,Indonesia. No matter how young we are, every little thing we do can make a big difference for Mother Earth!
