Objectives

  • involve the local governments, schools and other actors in Laguna in effectively engaging the youth in climate change adaptation, disaster risk response and other initiatives;
  • educate the youth on climate change and how this phenomenon may affect the province of Laguna and its wetlands, and how these problems can be avoided/ mitigated; and
  • empower the youth to take a more active role in disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
