Updates & Photos from Visayas Climate Hero Forum

Blog

Dumaguete is good to go this time as Esperanze Garcia and Karen Gatus visit for Climate Change Youth Forum March 3-5 at Negros Oriental State University & St. Paul’s University. PhilYCM is still very much on the move. Hopefully we’ll get more pledges for the 1-Million Tree Campaign.

Summer in the Philippines is especially also the season to remember our Mother Earth, with such events as World Forest Day (March 21,2010), Earth Hour (March 27,2010), Earth Day (April 22, 2010) you can find many ways to be involved in the Climate Change cause. So be sure to keep a close eye on events near you.
