Since I started my work in climate change, visiting Negros has always been a favorite considering the robust people-powered movement present in the region and the central role young people play in the struggle. Seeing so many young Negrenses rising up to protect their home island is always all sorts of inspiring. Planning a training that will help these young activists learn from some of the best senior communicators and campaigners from’s network was a treat in itself, and after the few days in Bacolod City conducting workshops and strategy meetings, I can safely say that I am confident the island’s future is in great hands.
