Climate education and environmental protection through music and the arts.
If there’s one thing that truly sparks joy in me, it is teaching kids to use their creativity to communicate their passion and advocacy.

Last February, I had the pleasure of meeting and teaching the You-Kalele kids from Zambales the song “Kapitan Klima” – a song I wrote many years ago for Dakila’s climate justice program, Climate School – an educational program on climate change. I also invited Desiree Llanos Dee, a climate advocate
and an illustrator, to give an art workshop “ImagineOcean” – a doodling workshop where kids can learn about marine health and waste management through drawing. The Climate Jam program ran for half a day and was attended by 18 kids from the music group, You- kalele Kids Zambales. The program concluded with a mini art exhibit and a performance.
