To bring more light to this issue, Rappler, in partnership with The Climate Reality Project Philippines, held a workshop in Bataan to take stock of advocacy gains and lessons from the ground, and learn how to leverage them for online campaign success.
This workshop was participated by around 50 workers, fisher folk, and housewives who are members of the Coal-Free Central Luzon Movement, as well as students, and covered designing online campaign strategies as well as learning how to use online platforms to help them amplify their advocacy against coal.
Speakers included representatives from Limay Concerned Citizens, Inc., Samahan at Ugnayan ng Mamamayan ng Mariveles, Coal-Free Bataan Movement, Philippine Movement for Climate Justice and Oscar M. Lopez Center, Rappler, and The Climate Reality Project Philippines.
