Aiming to intensify science communication through journalism, the Ateneo Biological Organization (BOx) staged a three-part writing workshop via Zoom on February 18, 23, and March 2, 2022.
Research is a fundamental part of advancing existing technology. Without this, much of what we know and use today would not exist. In a man’s world, there is one woman that was able to change the tides of the medical community at large: Tu Youyou.
It started with a promise and ended with a legacy. Today, a little over a decade after Dr. Fe Del Mundo’s death, we illuminate and narrate a promise that saved the children.
Indigenous knowledge is ripe with potential to advance research and development, and certain groups know this. However, instead of supporting them and collaborating with them, many would rather take the knowledge for their own gain.
The Ateneo BOx raised PhP 32,816.40 in its recently concluded online concert Happy BOx Year 2022: A Year of Giving, which featured guest bands as well as various student performers. The new year’s fundraiser was held for the benefit of victims of last year’s Typhoon Odette.
Ateneo BOx’s Department of Finance launched the LoveBOx project, a fundraising initiative that aims to bring together several communities during Valentine’s season through the provision of gift packages that contain eco-friendly items from sustainable brands.
Due to its archipelagic nature, the Philippines is a megadiverse country that houses two-thirds of the world’s biodiversity, specifically 70-80% of known animal and plant species to date.

Having the coast guards patrol the world’s ocean cover to monitor fishing activities is impractical and almost impossible; given this, the project on albatross trackers sounds like a brilliant plan to me, but what are its downsides?
Current solutions to the pressing ecological issues can only do much. There needs to be a shift in the paradigm of conservation wherein local communities and indigenous groups educate the people about good land management practices.
