The National Youth Commission (NYC) together with the Climate Change Commission (CCC) and the Yes Pinoy Foundation (YPF) will lead the celebration of the National Day for Youth in Climate Action or the #NowPh Day on November 25, at Eton Centris Walk, Quezon City.
This year’s #NowPH (Not on our Watch Philippines) celebration will feature arts and music as a means of expressing climate change issues to raise awareness and promote collective action. Young leaders, including indigenous people will join to express solidarity with the environment and call for more meaningful climate action.
It is a one-day event that will showcase performances from mainstream young artists as they will highlight the vital role of the youth sector in enhancing the resiliency of their local communities, and observing the rights of indigenous tribes and vulnerable sectors.
This celebration is in line with Proclamation No. 1160 issued on November 12, 2015 declaring November 25 of every year as the “National Day for Youth in Climate Action,” supported by the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF), United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and Eton Centris.
