FEU is saddened by the passing of former Department of Environment and Natural Resources secretary and staunch environmental and children’s rights advocate Gina Lopez.

She was 65.

Ms. Lopez was a partner and speaker in various FEU environmental programs. Her most recent appearance at FEU was during FEU Tech’s 6th Mid-Year Leadership Training and Seminar last March 2019.

She encouraged student leaders to use their talents and skills to take care of the environment.

“We should not forget to love one another because if you are only focused on making money, it’s like killing your soul,” she said.
