The Climate Change Commission on Friday highlighted the important role of the youth in coming up with concrete actions to address global warming and climate change in celebration of the 15th Global Warming and Climate Change Consciousness Week.
The activity dubbed “Kaalamang Klima: Climate Change Webinar Workshop for the Youth” was open to participants aged 18 to 30 yesterday at the Novotel Manila in Cubao, Quezon City.
It was designed to facilitate knowledge exchange among the youth to further deepen understanding on climate science, and encourage them to use their skills and energy to deliver effective climate action.
A national panel of technical experts and youth leaders joined the event to share in-depth presentations on climate change and its impacts.
The workshop was conducted in a hybrid setup with the first 90 registrants for face-to-face participation, while 500 others too part in the Zoom meeting.
With the theme “Sama-Samang Tugunan sa Hamon ng Nagbabagong Klima,” the week celebration drew together various climate change and environment stakeholders in the country in a collective effort toward the transformation of climate change commitments into action for a climate-smart and climate-resilient Philippines.
