PICAD2017-043

     "Be aware, do your share; in this changing climate, be the positive change." This is the battle cry of the campaign to intensify awareness on climate change where the Provincial Government of Cavite in collaboration with the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas, ABS-CBN DocuCentral and the Norwegian Royal Embassy anchored the launching of the 2017 Information Education Campaign (IEC) featuring the documentary film entitled "Warmer." 

     The program launch was held on February 27, 2017 at DLSU-D Auditorium in the City of Dasmariñas. Cavite Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Officer Cecil Miranda welcomed guests and participants to the event along with words of encouragement for the students to use their young minds towards positive transformation. In the same manner, on behalf of Governor Boying Remulla, Provincial Planning Development Coordinator Jesus Barrera highlighted in his message the significance of cooperation and communication among agencies to further promote awareness on the changing climate condition especially among the youth who will be future leaders. Barrera reminded participants to always show compassion on what and how to act. 

     Sharing the same advocacy is Communications Adviser to the Norwegian Embassy Mr. Ian Vergel Agsalda who congratulated Cavite government for the initiative in using the documentary "Warmer" as a wakeup call for the youth in bringing about transformation. Agsalda told students that climate change awareness campaign is not a choice but a necessity; therefore, everyone must act now. 

     Prior to watching the documentary film hosted by ABS-CBN news anchor Atom Araullo, Executive Producer Ms. Hera Sanchez provided the audience a brief overview on what it contains and what it aims to showcase. The documentary ran for almost an hour followed by an open forum that answered a number of queries from the students who showed much interest. Questions focused on how the panelists see Cavite years from now given all the factors on climate change. Others ask for pieces of advice on how future leaders can bring about positive change and contribute in achieving a better and safer province. 

     During the open forum, representatives from the provincial government reiterated the importance of being proactive and getting involved adding that what the province would be ten years from now greatly depends on today’s actions. They stressed that climate change must be taken seriously and to make environmental care a lifestyle not just a matter of compliance. In addition, Norwegian Embassy Representative Agsaldo imparted the ABC to success on whatever advocacy, that is A is for being the Ambassador and role model, B for being Brave to face challenges and C for being Consistent in every action. On the other hand, Sanchez of ABS-CBN said that, "We don't have to wait for the time to feel the worsening effect of climate change so we must act now.”

     Atom Araullo's "Warmer," is a documentary that digs into serious climate conditions as experienced in two different parts of the world (Philippines and Norway). "Warmer" has earned recognition from the Catholic Mass Media Awards as a media product that promotes human values and the love for life. It was also hailed finalist in the climate change and sustainability category in the New York Festivals Awards for international TV programs and films. (PICAD)
