The Responsibility of the Youth Project started in July 2, 2005 with the objective of promoting environmental responsibility among the youth leaders, pre-schoolers and their parents in the local government of U.P. (University of the Philippines) Village in Quezon City, Philippines. After four months of weekly classroom activities facilitated by nine youth leaders among twenty pre-schoolers, the project culminated with a closing program on October 15, 2005. Guest of honor was the barangay chairperson Virgilio Ferrer III.
In the closing program, the barangay chairperson read the awards given to the U.P. Village Youth Council by the Quezon City government during its 3rd Youth Achievers award held October 5, 2005. These awards were for Exemplary Community Service and Environmental Management Awards.
The closing program were highlighted by songs and dances of the young people celebrating environmental responsibility. Copies of the Charter of Human Responsibilities were distributed to parents and leaders who attended the ceremony.
