Introduction to Backpacking and Leave No Trace Ethics
For Corporate-based Outdoor/Mountaineering Clubs

As part of our effort to promote safe and responsible mountaineering, I will conduct an Introduction to Backpacking and LNT Ethics lecture to all interested MFPI affiliated and non-affiliated corporate-based outdoor / mountaineering clubs and organizations.

The lecture-presentation aims to:

* Update club members of current trends in Philippine mountaineering particularly the principles of Leave No Trace.
* Instill among fellow mountaineers sensitivity to indigenous communities
* Promote mountaineering to their colleagues, fellow employees and to recruit them to their club/organization.
* Prepare the novice mountaineer for the basic mountaineering course.
* Introduce the sport to in-house human resource specialists as an alternative venue to develop corporate wellness.
* Establish a working relationship between the club and their company through their HR department for future collaboration.

The 2-hour presentation include:

I. Mountaineering in the Philippines
II. Leave No Trace Environmental Awareness
III. Sensitivity to Indegenous People and Fellow Mountaineers
IV. Safety Tips on Backpacking and Mountaineering
