Klima Eskwela is Climate Reality Philippines’ knowledge exchange program that provides opportunities for communities across the country to deepen and broaden their understanding of climate science, policy, and governance. It also highlights the role of arts and humanities in the climate change conversation by creating spaces for awareness and reimagining a better and kinder future for all.
“Working with civil society partners is essential to reach more vulnerable communities and help them cope in this climate crisis. We look forward to working with Climate Reality Philippines in utilizing the power of science and the arts to empower students and youth, households, small and medium-sized enterprises, and local government authorities and institutions who know firsthand how the changing climate is affecting society and nature itself,” said CCC Commissioner Rachel Anne S. Herrera.
“We are committed to working with the CCC and other partners to bring Klima Eskwela to as many communities as possible,” said Nazrin Castro, Branch Manager of Climate Reality Philippines.
“Addressing the climate crisis requires cross-sectoral and intergenerational collaboration. We want to give the youth, advocates, and other stakeholders the tools and knowledge they need to make a difference,” added Nazrin Castro, Branch Manager of Climate Reality Philippines.
The first Klima Eskwela session co-presented by CCC and Climate Reality Philippines will take place in Dapitan City, Zamboanga Del Norte on 27-28 July 2023 in partnership with Jose Rizal Memorial State University (JRMSU).
