On International Youth Day, the council led by Giselle Lapid, Mirus Ponon, and Romina Lim organized an eco-exploration activity with youth leaders at the Ninoy Aquino Parks and Wildlife Center. Another notable initiative was led by Ron Caguliodo, who helped organized relief efforts for the communities affected by the oil spill in Oriental Mindoro. Individually, the members continued to create ripples of change by representing the organization and participating in local and international events, including conferences, symposiums and paper presentations in Batangas, Japan, Singapore and Mexico.
