    Discussions on the speakers' presentations were facilitated by Paolo Abrera, Suzi Entrata-Abrera, and Museo Pambata's Executive Director, Maricel Montero. 

    Participants also attended a scrap art workshop by visual artist Alma Quinto, where they used pieces of cloth to create artwork illustrating their commitment in addressing climate change. Another workshop on teaching kids about climate change by making it fun through games was facilitated by Froilan Grate of Mother Earth Foundation.

    The participants were also entertained with performances from the Batang Ramon Obusan Folkloric Group and the Pedro Gomez Anklung and Bumbong ensemble. Recycled/reconstructed clothing designs from Ann Wizer and Alma Quinto were also showcased through a fashion show. 

    To cap off the conference, the participants embarked on a field trip to Paco Market, seeing firsthand how the redevelopment team revitalized the Estero de Paco, followed by a trip to the National Museum of the Filipino People to learn more about Philippine history.
