Cambridge Climate Lecture Series

In February and March 2018, I was invited to talk about how to communicate climate change stories at the University of Cambridge. The first event was a solo lecture and the second event was a panel as part of the Cambridge Science Festival. In the panel with me were Lisa Walker, Sir David King, and Oliver Morton.

#SheForShe: French Embassy to the Philippines event for women

The French embassy launched a campaign 2017 called #SheForShe, an initiative as part of “PhilFrance : Feel French !”, a year-long festival to celebrate 70 years of diplomatic ties between France and the Philippines. I hosted the event, graced by some of the most amazing women leaders and feminists in the country including Sister Mar John Mananzan, OSB; Senator Risa Hontiveros; Dr. Junce Melgar of Likhaan Centre for Women’s Health; and Vice-President Leni Robredo.

FIFDH 2016

I was invited at the International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights in Geneva, Switzerland in February 2016 as a guest panelist for the debate/forum that happened after the screening of “This is Not A Film.” Here is the poster and some pages from the programme guide:   Some photos from the debate/panel: I also joined the Human Rights Tattoo event. Human Rights Tattoo aims to tattoo all letters of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights among individuals. When we stand beside each other, we can form the while UDHR!  I got the letter “t” under the right to equal marriage (we didn’t choose our letters, we were given it). Right now, the project is almost finished. Far apart from each other, but bound by our principles and belief in human dignity. Check out the project at humanrightstattoo.org! Some photos:
