Guam - The Governor's Office, in conjunction with Guam public broadcast station KGTF and the Bureau of Statistics and Plans is spearheading efforts to get Guam's youth involved in sifting through the Draft Environmental Impact Statement. Director Tony Lamorena says their mission is to engage high school students in discussions about the military buildup because these individuals are going to be a part of the workforce when the movement of U.S. Marines to Guam occurs.

Lamorena said, "We want them to be a part of the process. We want to hear their comments, what their issues are and what their concerns are. What we're doing is on February 5, we're hosting an event. We're working with the Department of Education and all the private schools to identify because of space availability, a number of students at their respective schools."

From February 8-10, Lamorena says local officials from agencies involved in natural resources and the environment will be at various campuses around the island to educate the youth about the impacts as a result of the buildup.
