Globe, WWF Philippines Advocate Climate Education via Camp Kalikasan

Published

on

Globe and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines are collaborating to promote climate education to encourage Filipinos to learn more about how they can care for the environment and take part in climate action through Camp Kalikasan.

 

Camp Kalikasan is an online digital resource center where Filipinos can learn the basics of how we can combat climate change, with the goal of empowering students, teachers, and individuals with practical knowledge and tips to support climate action.

 

“Globe recognizes that raising environmental awareness is a critical component to drive environmental conservation and sustainable practices. Through Camp Kalikasan, we hope to impart the importance of environmental stewardship and sustainability, and educate the public on how they can contribute to climate action in their own way,” said Yoly Crisanto, Globe Chief Sustainability and Corporate Communications Officer.

The collaboration is part of Globe’s commitment to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, particularly UN SDG No. 13 which underscores the importance of climate action to save lives and livelihood to address climate emergencies.

Camp Kalikasan is dedicated to climate education for students, the youth, teachers, and the general public.  It features multimedia content such as animated videos, films, stories, digital modules, quizzes, puzzles, and games designed for students and the youth.

 

The web-based platform includes credible resource materials to help teachers integrate environmental topics into their subjects. Currently, the platform already carries modules on the following:

In celebration of the Month of the Ocean this May, a new module on biodiversity was released covering the basics of rainforests, Philippine biodiversity, marine habitats (mangroves, seagrass and coral reefs), marine animals, and drivers of biodiversity loss.

 

The modules contain practical and relevant tips and actionable steps towards eco-friendly living. A citizen portal featuring a carbon footprint calculator will also be released this year.

 

Modules under the program also cover lessons on the importance of increased investments on greener services and facilities such as:

Globe Logs over 11M Prepaid SIM Registrants, urges Customers to Register before April 26 Deadline

Published

on

Globe, the leader in Mobile, has registered more than 11 million active prepaid SIMs around a month after the law mandating all Filipinos to register their SIMs took full effect.

Globe hit the milestone 11-million mark on Monday, January 30, 2023, a month after the SIM Registration Act was rolled out as a measure to stop cybercrime, including scam messages that proliferated due to the anonymity provided by prepaid SIMs.

“We are grateful to our customers for promptly registering their SIMs. We understand the importance of addressing the proliferation of scam and spam messages and have made it our priority to provide our customers with a seamless registration process. We are committed to meeting the deadline and continuing our efforts to protect our customers from scammers and fraudsters,” said Darius Delgado, Head of Globe’s Consumer Mobile Business.

Globe urges its customers who have yet to register to visit its user-friendly registration portal https://new.globe.com.ph/simreg. There are an estimated 87.4 million existing SIM users under the Globe network.

Registration via the GlobeOne app will begin in February as an added channel where customers may register their SIMs. As a user of GlobeOne, customers will have access to exclusive offers and deals that are available only in the app.

Globe also provided support for government-led assisted registration in priority sites nationwide from January 25 to 27. Globe established booths in 15 areas and provided assistance to anyone who needed help, especially those in need of special assistance, including senior citizens, PWDs awww and those using basic/feature phones.

Other than supporting the NTC-led assisted SIM registration, Globe has also started rolling out its own on-site assistance booths across the country. From January 27 to 29, it led SIM registration assistance in 30 Puregold branches in strategic locations in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. It will extend SIM registration assistance in other locations soon.

These efforts aim to provide inclusive ways to get its customers registered by the April 26, 2023 deadline. Users who fail to complete their registration on time will have their SIMs deactivated.

Even before the new law was implemented, Globe has taken several steps to curb disruptive messages through proactive blocking, threat intelligence partnerships with financial institutions, a customer reporting portal, plus an awareness and education campaign to help customers with online protection.

Globe Deactivates, Blacklists More than 50,000 SIMs Linked to Fraud in 2022

Published

on

Leading digital solutions platform Globe deactivated and blacklisted more than 50,000 SIMs last year as it continued to intensify consumer protection initiatives amid the rising cases of online fraud.

Globe deactivated 20,225 SIMs and blacklisted 35,333 SIMs involved in scam and spam messages in 2022 alone as part of its campaign for internet safety.

This was on top of the record 2.72 billion scam and spam messages it blocked last year, 83.4 million of which were bank-related. All these efforts have been on-going to protect customers from harmful content and fraud before the enactment of the SIM Registration Act.

“Globe recognizes the growing threat posed by scammers, who use various tactics, including text messages, to deceive innocent victims into giving up personal information that could be used to compromise their financial accounts. We will continue to invest in our cybersecurity program to protect our customers from these unscrupulous individuals,” said Anton Bonifacio, Globe Chief Information Security Officer.

Under its filtering protocol, Globe deactivates SIMs within its network once detected to have been involved in fraud. Meanwhile, SIMs outside of the Globe network are blacklisted to prevent them from sending to Globe.

Globe Deactivates SIM Blocked

On its own, Globe has taken a proactive approach to combat cybercrime schemes through various initiatives. It has implemented blocking mechanisms, established partnerships with financial institutions for threat intelligence, created a customer reporting portal, and launched an awareness and education campaign to empower customers with the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves.

Meanwhile, in a move to address growing concern over the use of unregistered SIMs in committing cybercrimes, the government introduced Republic Act No. 11934, also known as the SIM (subscriber identity module) Registration Act. Signed into law in October, the measure requires all mobile and broadband users to register their SIMs with their respective service providers to ensure that they are properly identified.

As of January 25, Globe has logged 10.4 million registrations of prepaid SIMs.
