Showcased in the festival are the documentary films produced by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, tackling some environmental issues like waste management, air pollution and resiliency to climate change. The film which inspired students and teachers the most has the part where schools and communities were able to build its own composting facility, thereby reducing wastes.
Composting is a process in which organic, biodegradable wastes are turned into a rich compost, commonly known as garden soil or organic fertilizer.
