The Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) XII conducts various Information, Education and Communication (IEC) activity campaigns to promote its programs and services on the Mineral Resources Development and Geosciences.

One of the recent IEC conducted was during the ‘Duterte Legacy: Barangayanihan Caravan’ in Region XII. It is said to be a collaboration with government agencies, as well as volunteers from the Global Coalition of Advocacy Support Groups and Force Multipliers. The campaign aims to inform the public about the government’s programs, policies, accomplishments, and efforts to bring about real change to the lives of the Filipino people by showcasing real stories from the beneficiaries in their respective localities of the administration’s landmark policies and programs.

To raise awareness on the protection and conservation of our environment particularly the water resources, the Mines and Geosciences Bureau (MGB) XII participated in the simultaneous regionwide coastal clean-up in celebration of the Month of the Ocean (MOO) 2022 with the theme “Protect and Restore Ecosystems and Biodiversity” on May 18, 2022 in Brgy. Kawas, Province of Sarangani. 

The activity was led by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) XII together with the various National Government Agencies, Local Government Units, and other stakeholders in Region XII.
