We’ll be discussing how to cultivate practices of care and sustainability for ourselves, others, and nature.

Joining the online conversation are advocates including Chit Juan, Founder of ECHOfarms and ECHOstore; Chef Jam Melchor, Head of Slow Food Youth Network Philippines; and Anna Manalastas, certified and registered yoga teacher, to share their practices and promote sustainable living.

In previous episodes, the online series tackled various sustainability practices that promote environmental stewardship, putting a spotlight on the link between climate change and environmental issues and the consumerist culture. For this episode, Legarda and guests will call on the millennials, families, and the general public to nurture a loving relationship not only with loved ones, but also with nature.

The celebration of Valentines’ is also an occasion to show love for the Earth and put hearts to fight climate change by making sustainable choices on food, clothing, and mobility, among many others.

As an online discussion to promote health, environmental consciousness, and climate-adaptive practices, “Stories for a Better Normal” aims to change the mindset of individuals, families, and communities by demonstrating ways in which a ‘better normal’ can be realized within our communities.
