Involve all the stakeholders in any multi-sectoral economic activity to ensure a common understanding of expected business results and environmental gains. Involvement will start during the planning process, continue until the program implementation and evaluation.
Develop project proposals that will interlink different agencies in the promotion of eco-industrial activities. Some agencies like DENR, DA, Haribon Foundation and the LGUs are more than willing to help in this effort considering that environment is their key concern. What they are waiting for are concrete, doable projects that they can identify with.
The academe should be a constant initiator in the preparation of project feasibility studies for potential eco-industrial activities, given the perceived local and international markets for selected products.

The course, to be conducted by volunteer-managers, is free for selected students.
