The Ateneo Environmental Science Society is the pioneer environmental organization of the Ateneo de Manila University. Known as EcoWarriors, members fight for the four main advocacies: sustainability, forest and wildlife conservation, energy conservation, and marine conservation. The projects and events include immersions, community engagements, talks, seminars, and more. Grounded on the principles of logical environmentalism and ecological interrelationship, the organization aims to instill within the members the importance of environment in each discipline, and the importance of lifestyle change, and eventually to the rest of the nation.


The AESS envisions an Atenean community who will lead the Loyola Schools through involvement of logical and proactive environmental efforts leading to a nationwide movement for a sustainable environment and lifestyle.


As the premier environmental organization of the Ateneo dedicated towards sustainable development, the Ateneo ESS is an empowered community that has consciousness and appreciation for the environment. The organization commits itself to initiating campaigns that are grounded on scientific reason and logical environmentalism. The Ateneo ESS aids Ateneans, especially Environmental Science Majors, in enhancing their understanding of man’s relationship with the environment by providing avenues of participation inside and outside the University.

Core Competencies:

  •   Advocating the principle of logical environmentalism grounded on ecological interrelationship
  •   Providing different avenues for concrete action and involvement for the environment and also activities that foster camaraderie among members and amongst ES majors

  1. The current Ateneo president, Fr. Jett is an ecowarrior! In fact, “Environment and Development” is one of his three strategic thrusts.
