Pakikinigang Magkapwa: Sharing Our Stories to Build, Unite, and Sustain Our Communities Toward Climate Resiliency and Justice
Indigenous people have occupied the Pacific Islands for thousands of years, living sustainably and compatibly with the environment—having the knowledge, respect, care and interdependent relationship with all living things. The climate crisis threatens our homes, way of life, our very existence. Hear and share stories from Filipino fisher folks, farmers and women who live in the coastal areas of the Philippines and whose day-to-day economic well-being are bound with resolving the climate change crisis.Learn peer counseling tools to develop mutual support networks to move through barriers, heal conflict and ultimately restore the relationship between people and the natural environment.
This event is part of the Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Change program of Climate Week NYC.
