We were honored to have had the students and their teachers and the various representatives from various partnering organizations. we certainly learnt a lot of Climate Change Adaption strategies at the school competition. We look forward to doing more educational seminars such as this in the near future. Our Municipality is Our Responsibility.. Action is certainly the best option
