The episode, entitled, “Tayo at ang Natatanging Mundo: Sustainable Actions for the Planet” will underscore the importance of sustainable lifestyles and environmental practices that help protect our #OnlyOneEarth.

Climate change and sustainability are interlinked. While sustainability is a broad concept that encompasses different aspects, this is also a form of climate action that can help address the impacts of climate change.
As youth play an important role in addressing climate change, they must be at the forefront in developing models and best practices for a sustainable future.
The upcoming episode endeavors to encourage more young people to be advocates for climate action through storytelling that breaks down the complexities of climate change issues.
“Stories for A Better Reality” seeks to tackle climate issues, promote initiatives and solutions, and inform policy and action by framing the discussion from the perspective of the youth.
NPTE Member Dr. Maria Angela Zafra will also join us for the #ExpertsExplain to give sustainability tips addressing climate change. This will be followed by a response from Assistant Director Diane Gail Maharjan of the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA).
This monthly webcast series is organized in partnership between the Climate Change Commission and the Climate Reality Project Philippines, with support from the Department of Education, Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Kids for Kids, and Wavefarers.
