Various environmentally-centered activities in the Philippines have registered and are geared to join the largest day of global environmental action called the 10/10/10 campaign scheduled this today, October 10, where some 180 countries have expressed their participation.
Some 60 events in the Philippines have already registered for the international climate campaign group 350.org “Climate Work Parties.” The 10/10/10 events will start at sunrise on remote Pacific Islands and continue throughout the day until sunset off the coast of Hawaii in the United States (US). After each event, organizers will send in photos and videos to the 350.org Web site where they will be available to the general public and the media.
The Philippines participated in one of the largest actions of 350.org on October 24 last year when the campaign organized over 5,200 events in 182 countries to support the goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions.
Groups from Luzon to Mindanao are organizing tree-planting activities near the coal-fired thermal plants and mining concessionaires, mangrove tree planting along the coastlines, run, and a series of forums to amplify their resolve to work on local climate solutions, and show that carbon-cutting measures are feasible if only the government leaders around the globe will act decisively.
