Makati promotes climate awareness through poetry and art
The fight against climate change has been gaining more and more attention lately, and Makati City Mayor Abby Binay is one of the leaders who has been vocal about the importance of climate awareness. Today, she expressed her support for this cause during the relaunching of the "Poets for Climate" exhibit at the University of Makati.
The exhibit is a collaboration between the university and the Climate Reality Project Philippines, and it seeks to encourage young people to get involved in the fight against climate change. Mayor Abby was not present at the event, but she extended her greetings through Vice Mayor Monique Lagdameo, who attended the event alongside UMak administrators and other city officials.
In her message, Mayor Abby emphasized the importance of raising awareness about climate change and the role that the youth can play in this fight. She commended the organizers for their efforts in using poetry as a medium to educate and inspire the next generation of climate advocates.
The exhibit features poems and artworks created by UMak students that highlight the urgency of the climate crisis and the need for action. It aims to encourage young people to reflect on their role in this issue and to take action to reduce their carbon footprint and help protect the environment.
The Climate Reality Project Philippines, which is one of the partners of the exhibit, is a non-profit organization that aims to raise awareness about climate change and to promote solutions to this global problem. The organization was founded by former US Vice President Al Gore, who is also a leading voice in the climate movement.
The relaunching of the "Poets for Climate" exhibit is a timely reminder that we all have a role to play in the fight against climate change. It is a call to action for the youth to take up the challenge and become advocates for the environment. Mayor Abby's support for this initiative is a clear indication that Makati City is committed to this cause and is willing to work with partners to find solutions to this global problem.
