Last September 24, 2021, youth climate activists from across the Philippines took to the streets to demand climate justice. With the hashtag #UprootTheSystem, YACAP sought to shine a spotlight on the systemic issues that result in the crisis character of the climate crisis here in the country.
Various Filipino youth organizations also participated in online actions, where they joined a digital selfie protest holding up house plants (aligned with the national #Klimalaman theme).
The Education Committee of YACAP also launched Klimalaman: The Podcast, a four-episode podcast series leading up to the November UN climate talks in Glasgow. As of writing, the podcast can be streamed on SoundCloud and Spotify.
