More than a thousand students will form a human banner at the Rizal High School in Pasig City on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 7:30 in the morning to dramatize the call on world leaders to increase cap on carbon gas emission.
The event coincides with the #nowph ( not on our watch ) day and the launch of the National Day for Youth in Climate Action based on Presidential Proclamation 1160 recently issued by Malacanang.
#nowph day is a historic event that serves as a culminating activity after gathering a million signatures that represent the voices of the youth.It is also a prelude to the forthcoming 21st Conference of Parties in Paris, France that will be attended by leaders representing nearly 200 countries with the aim of coming up with a legally binding agreement to address the issue of climate change.
National Youth Commission officials led by NYC Chairperson Usec Gio Tingson and Asec Dong Dantes are expected to grace the activities together with representatives from the Climate Change Commission, the French Embassy in Manila, UNICEF, USAID, FDF, WWF and other stakeholders.
The call to further decrease the earth’s temperature has gained support from the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines, World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), House of Representatives, the Senate of the Philippines, media networks, local government units, non government organizations, international development institutions and others.
In this regard, we would like to invite your reporter/TV crew to cover the event.
