Pursuant to the Proclamation No. 1667, dated November 18, 2008, the period of November 19-25, 2008 and every year thereafter has been declared as the “Global Warming and Climate Change Consciousness Week”.
The Proclamation aims to create awareness on global warming and climate change by pursuing broad and intensive public information and educational campaign to secure the collective cooperation of private and public sectors at all levels in finding solutions to this concern. The Proclamation calls on “all agencies, government offices and instrumentalities to collaborate in coordination with the private sector, and in liaison with the United Nations family to conduct and participate in relevant activities.
Relative thereto, the Climate Change Commission, with the President of the Republic of the Philippines as its chairperson, shall facilitate the conduct of week-long activities focusing on climate change adaptation and disaster risk reduction together with relevant agencies in coordination with key stakeholders and private sector institutions.
Serve as a platform of knowledge exchange, climate adaptation, good practices and foster greater collaboration among stakeholders, the government, business, non-government organizations, civil society organizations, academe, youth, and the general public.
For 2020, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic situation, the CCC intends to conduct this annual celebration using digital meeting platforms (i.e. Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, etc.).
