The Blue Collar Initiative (BCI) — Caring for the the Earth, Promoting Livelihood, Reliving Sustainable Gardening Traditions The Blue Collar Initiative (BCI) is an effort to promote environmental livelihood and conservation through enterprises that promote the FORESTATION AND LIVELIHOOD YOUTH MOVEMENT (FLIYM) It starts from the ranks of young volunteers who are into earth care–especially on tree planting safe food production. It will be a movement EMPOWERED by the YOUTH. One that will not only ensure REFORESTATION but also provide LIVELIHOOD. As the region, in particular, and the nation, in general comes into grips with the stark negative environmental realities, it is time for the YOUTH to make their mark, and not only walk their talk. That change must come from them. The mission of the FLIYM is to empower young people to take responsibility for the environmental and livelihood well-being of their communities. they have entrusted it too long to the older generation and look what it brought them? The vision is to bridge communication across culture, region, education, and socio-economic backgrounds through collaboration on ecologically and socially responsible environmental enterprises for the Cordillera region. It will be done through sustainable leadership training and the development of for-profit social enterprises funded through microfinancing and resource-sharing. To be run by the Cordillera Ecological Center other wise know as PINE TREE (Project Initiating Employment and Education), it will have three main projects: 1) Forestation-sustainable agriculture home-based industries that will train youth in sustainable agriculture. They will practice traditional home gardens and plant trees in agricultural areas across in the Cordillera region to arrest soil erosion, improve soil and plant crops to rejuvenate the Cordillera region’s agricultural economy and environment. 2) A hands-on school where students can study regardless of their financial background, that incorporates human values and leadership into its fabric. 3) A market conduit to promote the trainees products so that these can be known and sold (agricultural and artisanal), to stimulate the local economy crowded out by excess importation.
