Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

The project is a medium-term development intervention measure that intends to empower the local community of Banacon Island for economic, social and environmental sustainability. This was so conceived and implemented based on the data gathered in a participatory resource appraisal conducted by professors of Bohol Island State University. It was found out that the problems of the island community, identified by the residents themselves also fall into the thematic areas of ESD such as Climate Change Awareness, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management, Mangrove and Marine Ecosystem and Ecological Education, Health, Sanitation and Waste Management Education, Green and Sustainable Island Living Education and Gender Issues.

The activities that have so far been conducted were dialogue and planning with local residents on how to go about with the intervention, conduct of skills and professional development training for locals and teachers, donation of slippers to school children and LCD projector and screen to the school, circumcision and dental mission, initial impact assessment of the activities and seminar and planning to organize locals to form a cooperative.

After the culmination of the three waves of Skills and Professional Development Training to locals and teachers, there was a presentation of the assessment of the initial impact of the activities thus far conducted to the partner institutions. The Cooperative Development Training was conducted thereafter where locals were exposed to the basics of cooperative development. The seminar was so intended in preparation for the management of certain tourist attraction sites that were identified in the island to be developed jointly by the partner institutions of the project with the involvement of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
