25 June 2022, Laguna Quezon Land Grant, Siniloan, Laguna. “What inspired me to do this on my birthday is the news circulating on social media about how the Earth is only expected to get worse as the years come by. Also, a great influence would have to be Greta Thunberg who inspired me to resonate with her advocacy about climate change and environmental policies. Her actions made me realize that there’s no age too young to get yourself involved in pursuits like this.” -Joyce de Leon

NATURE IS SPEAKING (Narrated by Julia Roberts)
What can I do to stop climate change?
“As the world warms, extreme weather events are becoming more frequent and intense, sea levels are rising, prolonged droughts are putting pressure on food crops, and many animal and plant species are being driven to extinction. It’s hard to imagine what we as individuals can do to resolve a problem of this scale and severity.
The good news: We are not alone. People, communities, cities, businesses, schools, faith groups and other organizations are taking action. We’re fighting like our lives depend on it — because they do.
In a world of more than seven billion people, each of us is a drop in the bucket. But with enough drops, we can fill any bucket.” – David Suzuki

In 2015, the Philippine government submitted to the United Nations the country’s commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The country committed to reduce its carbon emissions by 70 percent by 2030. The carbon dioxide reductions will come from the sectors of energy, transport, waste, forestry and industry. Join us!
