Share you #KwentongClimate this Urban October

About #KwentongClimate

#KwentongClimate is a video series which brings the climate conversation to common individuals. The video series aims to raise awareness on climate change by discussing it through the lens of ordinary people on the ground, in the context of their place/community. The series will feature individuals from different sectors and demographics as they talk about what climate change means to them and their communities/cities, the actions they are taking, actions they are seeing in their cities/communities.

The videos will be a montage of statements, thoughts, or short “kwentos”.

The series will be launched on World Habitat Day event and be featured on UN-Habitat social media pages and website. It will run throughout the month of October 2021, in celebration of Urban October.
