Philipinas Shell has been in the Philippines for 105 years and as they celebrate this milestone, they renew their commitment to deliver cleaner energy to help meet growing needs and find ways to use energy more efficiently.

The company launched its #MakeTheFuture campaign with an event designed for kids at the Mind Museum in Bonifacio Global City Taguig. Today's kids, after all, are the future stakeholders, and the ones who will inherit whatever we leave behind.

Everything that we are doing today impacts on future generations, and it is interesting to see what tomorrow’s decision-makers and leaders know about energy, how they’re affected and what they think must happen to ensure that Shell can help make the future sustainable for them, says Cesar Romero, country chairman of Shell companies in the Philippines.

By holding the Kids #MakeTheFuture event, Shell intends to create an opportunity to promote energy consciousness and education among youngsters, as well as to invite them to join the discussion on improving and making the future of energy.

The young attendees were among the first to see the #MakeTheFuture campaign video which highlights inspiring stories of kids who benefit from ongoing programs like Access to Energy, Shell’s program to power off-grid communities using renewable energy.

Romero was joined by Managing Director of Shell Philippines Exploration B.V. (SPEX) Don Paulino and Country Health Manager Dr. Rose Rivera in providing insights on the many ways that everyone, including kids, uses and expend energy, and what Shell does to provide them the energy that they need.

We really want to empower kids. They have so much potential to create things, and all we need to do is give them the right resources and opportunities, says Romero. By showing them that we can put renewable energy to good use, like powering up communities, we hope to help them realize that they can make the future of energy clean, sustainable and possible for everyone, he adds.
