We reach out to you especially on the eve of the WORLD ARCHITECTURE DAY set for October 2, 2017 so that your members and chapters, your committees and Commissions will take cognizance of the fact anf encourage every individual atchitect in this beloved organization to participate in the coming activities tomorrow for the WORLD ARCHITECTURE DAY.

The UAP NATIONAL OFFICERS will spearhead this activity tomorrow thru the UAP National Commission on Government and External Affairs headed by Executive Director Arch. Gil Japitana with the active participation of the WAD Committee of Arch. Gabby Cascante. We encourage every architect to join the bandwagon and promote their WAD activities in various chapters and localities all over the country. It is our fervent desire to address the theme for this year in the WAD on CLIMATE CHANGE. And so we enjoin all the architects and the various climate conscious society participants to join the UAP in their day long activity here in Manila starting with the flag-raising ceremony at Manila City Hall, their kilometer walk for Climate Change, the Continuing Profrssional Development Program at 9am at the Ramon Magsaysay Hall at Roxas Boulevard hosted by UAP Manila Maharlika , the GRACES opening of the CSR Project of the UAP for our abandoned and neglected senior elderlies in Quezon City in partnership with Ted Failon's Ngayon Program, the various exhibits in Malls all over the country on climate change and the culmination night affair at the Ramon Magsaysay Hall along Roxas Boulevard with the Good Mayor of Manila as our guest.

A day ago was the pre-WAD activity of the UAP National Committee on Environment and Ecology UAP TANIM 42 + 58 YEARS, a tree planting activity of endemic tree species in partnership with the DENR under Sec. Roy Cimatu. Coupled with these today were some chapters nationwide conducting in advance activities related to the UIA yheme for WAD on Climate Changes.

We would like to see our active chapters , their presidents and dedicated diatrict directors having an active role in tomorrow's WAD activities. We would also like to see your chapter, your district, your area, your committees and commission's report couples with pictures submitted and even contributed to the UAP Website which we will immediately publish and recognize.

Again , our encouragement to all architects to give the architectural profession the needed promotion in your locality, in our website and even in the national tri-media thr proper exposure of the architects and their profession.
