Youth for the environment: Climate Change Commission and Nestlé PH gather the brightest ideas for climate action at the Klimathon Finalist Showcase

KLIMATHON: Our race towards a Net Zero Reality Finalist showcase was held last January 25, 2022

 Youth for the environment: Climate Change Commission and Nestlé PH gather the brightest ideas for climate action at the Klimathon Finalist Showcase


10 teams selected to advance to the final round and undergo mentorship sessions from industry experts.

The impacts of climate change have gradually intensified around the world with countries experiencing more severe weather conditions, and sea levels rising at an increasing rate. Without urgent action, these are only foreseen to worsen and among those who will bear the most burden is the next generation.

Recognizing this, the youth is taking a stand towards mitigating climate change in various ways such as supporting environmental causes, reducing their carbon footprint, and using their voices in raising awareness on the current climate situation. The United Nations even described them as “agents of change, entrepreneurs and innovators” when it comes to climate action.

As a way to provide the Filipino youth a platform to develop new and workable solutions that can help address pressing climate concerns, the Climate Change Commission (CCC) and Nestlé Philippines launched “Klimathon: Our Race Towards a Net-Zero Reality” last October 2021. Students and young innovators were asked to send in their project concepts focusing on any of these three pillars: plastic waste management, energy efficiency and renewable energy, and food security. 

After receiving entries from participants nationwide, CCC and Nestlé have selected 10 teams that will advance to the final stage of the Klimathon and undergo a mentoring program led by experts in the fields of sustainability, agriculture, energy and technology. The finalists presented their project concepts during the virtual Klimathon Finalist Showcase.

Engr. Angelica Anne Munar, winner of the International Eco-Concrete Competition in 2019 and youth innovator, gave her words of wisdom and advice to the finalists

Each of the top 10 entries exemplified the youth’s innovative thinking and out of the box approach in helping addressing environmental concerns in the country. From upcycling fish food waste into bioplastic to solar-powered temperature and humidity-controlled food storage boxes.

During the event, the members of the mentoring pool were also introduced to help participants refine their proposed solutions and support them the as they become more involved in climate action moving forward.

After the mentoring sessions, the three winning teams will be named at the Klimathon Finals happening in April 2022. Special citation awards will be given to entries that embody and promote gender empowerment, originality and community participation.

The top 10 finalists and mentors gathered during the showcase together with Nestlé Philippines and the Climate Change Commission during the virtual showcase. Also present was Department of Finance Assistant Secretary Paola Alvarez who talked about the role of the youth in mitigating climate change 


“When the CCC and Nestlé Philippines launched this competition last year, we aimed to showcase what the Filipino youth can offer when it comes to climate action. We want to provide an avenue where they can freely create and develop sustainability-focused ideas for the environment. Knowing more about their innovative and refreshing project concepts today, I do believe we have achieved this goal,” said Mr.  Ludwig O. Federigan, Chief of Information and Knowledge Management Division from the Climate Change Commission.

Nestle Philippines AVP for Sustainability and Public Affairs, Ms. Christine Ponce-Garcia, also commended the young finalists: “Seeing these bright minds come together shows us that the future is indeed bright as we journey towards a net-zero reality. At Nestlé PH, we celebrate the youth engaged in climate action with their vision and passion. They will be the leaders in ensuring a healthier, more livable planet that they will inherit.”

Celebrating a family occasion amidst the pandemic

 


Celebrating a family occasion amidst the pandemic

 

It’s been more than a year since the pandemic started. We are still celebrating birthdays, holidays, and other family occasions without the usual things that we love to do. Due to the ongoing restrictions, we may be missing out on dine-ins, out of town vacations, and gatherings among family and friends.

Virtual parties during this pandemic are the current alternatives for special events. But a family celebration can still be special. It's simply a matter of being more creative with what you have.

Make the start of the day special
Begin the day by preparing a superb breakfast. Play some music to make it livelier and more memorable.

Deliver love to your home
This is perfect for those who are away from their families. Let your family feel your presence by surprising them with the delivery of food. For birthday occasions, you can book a delivery for a cake and balloons.

Doing things together at home
The country has eased up restrictions on certain tourist spots. However, activities at home remain to be hassle-free and with fewer worries.

Play board games, watch movies, or do other things with your family at home. Bring the spa experience to the comforts of your own place!

Party virtually!
Who wouldn’t love to catch up with your long-distance relatives and friends? Video conference platforms are available for us to use. Just send them a link and let the party begin - virtually!

The gift of health
For every special occasion, the best gift is good health and safety. Aside from staying at home, you can speak to your family about immunization against COVID-19 and other vaccine-preventable diseases.

There are already approved COVID-19 vaccines here in the Philippines. Everyone is encouraged to sign up for vaccination. Local government units are giving free COVID-19 vaccines.

The pandemic is far from over, but by getting vaccinated, we are moving a step closer to achieving herd immunity. Soon, we may be back to face-to-face reunions and other gatherings! To get the latest updates in immunization, visit Call The Shots PH Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/CallTheShotsPH/

Call the Shots PH is an awareness campaign to protect expectant parents and their children from vaccine-preventable diseases. This advocacy is brought to you by MSD in the Philippines.

Did you know that we tend to use a facemask for hours and sometimes longer that it was really intended to, and the result is having maskne. 

Maskne or Mask Acne are visible skin irritation, pimple breakouts, on the area covered by the mask may it be for improper use of mask or having overly sensitive skin. Now, how are we to deal with maskne? Use Pond’s Anti- Bacterial Facial Foam! This is the vey first step in dealing with maskne so you better include this in your skincare regimen.

Get Glowing This 2022 with These Skincare Tips You Shouldn’t Skip On


We’ve finally let 2021 go. But there’s still things we need to keep this new year – our skincare routines!

We’re reminded time and time again to keep ourselves healthy, including our skincare. While it can be overwhelming to work on your new year goals, you can keep your glow this 2022 with these skincare tips you shouldn’t skip on:

1. Score e-comm deals for your skincare haul.

Get bigger discounts for your skincare haul when you check-out around the wee hours of the night. With almost 50% discount in Olay’s e-comm stores, stock up on your skincare essentials and enjoy the freebies for yourself, and or your loved ones! 

2. Reward yourself a skincare upgrade.
For everything that you and your skin have been through this year, your skincare needs an upgrade. Reward yourself this holiday by trying on some of the biggest skincare trends, like retinol and collagen peptide.

Olay Retinol24 Serum
Olay Retinol24 Serum

Olay Retinol24 Serum
Welcome the new year with your youthful glow powered by Olay Retinol24 night Serum. Its powerful formulation of retinol is proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, fade dark spots, and tighten pores. It delivers anti-aging ingredients deep into your skin's surface for plumper, firmer skin — so you wake up as if the morning after is not a disaster. 
Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide24 Moisturizer

Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptide24 Moisturizer
If you want to achieve younger-looking skin, one skincare trend  you shouldn’t skip on these holidays is collagen.  collagen, which humans naturally produce, is what helps maintain the firmness and plumpness of  skin. However, collagen production starts to slow down when we enter our 20s. By the time we reach our 40s, collagen production has decreased by 15 to 30%, already being visible through the skin.

While most beauty products claim to be packed with high concentration of collagen, only a few can penetrate the skin well, leaving collagen just at the surface of your face. Olay’s formula of Niacinamide and Collagen Peptide24 in each bottle of the Olay Regenerist Collagen Peptime24 moisturizer stimulates collagen production like how collagen would occur naturally. This helps make skin look firmer and maintain moisture. And with just 2 weeks of use, the skin is visibly tightened, more supple, and firmer than ever.

If your skin feels dry or dehydrated from the ever-changing circumstances, the Olay White Radiance Niacinamide + Hyaluronic Super Serum is right for you. Hyaluronic is a powerful humectant, which attracts and binds water, keeping the skin fully hydrated while looking dewy and bouncy.

Century Tuna unveils inspiring new video by top director Antoinette Jadaone


#CenturyTunaLoveStrong message serves as an inspiration for Filipinos to stay strong and healthy not just for ourselves but for the people we love.


Century Tuna unveils inspiring new video by top director Antoinette Jadaone

 

Everyone has reasons for staying strong and healthy. And in Century Tuna’s short film entitled ‘Dahilan’ directed by award-winning director Antoinette Jadaone, viewers will get to see the story of a young man and his fitness journey as it unfolds.

If you haven’t seen 'Dahilan’ yet, watch the full video on Century Tuna’s official Facebook page (https://bit.ly/CenturyTunaLoveStrong) before you read this entire article as there are spoilers ahead.
Century Tuna releases first-ever short film entitled ‘Dahilan’ directed by award-winning director Antoinette Jadaone.

 

The two-minute video, starts with a montage of the young man working out with improvised home equipment. It then cuts to him cooking a special meal, which he brings up to the rooftop of his small apartment for a simple but heartfelt ‘date’. It is then revealed that his date is actually his mom with disability, and he has to carry her up to the rooftop. They have been doing the breakfast dates on that same rooftop ever since he was young and he wanted to continue to bring happiness to his mom by doing the same.

Sa panahon ngayon, we must be strong - not just physically but also mentally, and not just for ourselves but also for the people we love. Humuhugot tayo ng lakas sa isa't isa,” shared Jadaone.
“Dahilan” highlights the importance of living a healthy lifestyle for the people we care about.

 


For Century Tuna, the country’s leading canned tuna, the short film takes on a new definition to health: “Many of our previous campaigns showcased fit and sexy bodies, which can be achieved with the help of Century Tuna. With ‘Dahilan’, we are telling the story of our consumers’ “why” – the reason for wanting to have a strong body to take on challenges. We wanted to highlight the importance of living a healthy lifestyle for the people we care about,” said Century Pacific Food Inc. (CPFI) VP and GM for Tuna Division Carlo Endaya. 

Thankfully, Jadaone shares the same vision for her first project with Century Tuna, stressing that ‘Dahilan’ focuses more on the story and narrative. “Sa brief pa lang, nakita ko nang it's a different Century Tuna project - hindi naka-focus sa abs, sa katawan, sa muscles. It's about being strong pa rin - pero for the people you love.”

Sa’yo ako humuhugot ng lakas,” narrated the son in a voice-over. “Kahit ang bigat ng mundo, kinakaya ko. Kasi ‘ma, kinaya mo.”

The voice-over, further complemented by the short film’s original song, was a creative touch by the esteemed director: “My editor Ben Tolentino—who's also my editor in my films like “Fan Girl” and “Never Not Love You”—and I added voice-overs of the son. So aside from the song lyrics, nakasilip tayo sa kung ano ang nararamdaman ni son while he's doing all these for his mom. I'm happy Century Tuna and the agency loved that additional touch.”

As the world continues to face the challenges of the pandemic, the short film’s “Love Strong” message serves as an inspiration for Filipinos to stay strong and healthy for themselves and for the people they love.

Given the meaningful outcome of the video, Carlo Endaya considers Antoinette Jadaone the perfect choice for the “Love Strong” short film. “We’re happy to work with Direk Tonet on this project. Through powerful storytelling, she perfectly captured the message that we wanted to convey: that we stay strong and healthy not just for ourselves but for the people we love as well.”
