Baguio City will mark the Climate Change Consciousness Week with meaningful activities on the first week of December.

The city council declared Nov. 19 to 25 of every year as Global Warming and Climate Change Consciousness Week in Resolution 357, s. 2019.

The activities will be spearheaded by the Climate Consciousness and Action Group (CCAG) composed of “environment advocates consisting of individuals and institutions from the religious sector, the academe, barangays, parishes, and civil society organizations from the various sectors in the city who have taken up the exigent challenge to act on averting/minimizing the imminent impacts of global climate change.”

CCAG co-convenor Maria Victoria Bautista said their aim is to “create awareness and open opportunities for sustained collective action to combat climate change.”

For the celebration, the group collaborated with the Department of Education, Teachers’ Camp, Baguio-Benguet Birders, and the Wild Bird Photographers of the Philippines to spearhead three major events, all to be held at the Roxas Hall AVR of Teachers’ Camp.

The “Bird and climate change: Reconnecting with nature” slated on Dec. 2 and 3 will be a gathering of bird lovers and biodiversity and climate action advocates.

It will feature lectures on climate change, biodiversity, bird photography and IP bird view, a bird watching experience on Dec. 3 and a bird photo exhibit from Dec. 3 to 7 to showcase the works of the birders’ groups at the Executive Cottage of Teachers’ Camp.

On Dec. 5 and 6, the “Climate crisis: Faith and perspectives – reflecting on an existential, moral and theological issue” forum will be held with lectures and discussions among faith representatives discussing the escalating climate crisis and their role as stewards of creation.

A discussion of the philosophy, legal framework and practical side of the Rights of Nature Bill entitled, “Rights of nature: On the sacredness of all life forms” is set on Dec. 7.
