Earth Faces an exhibit at Greenbelt 5’s Fashion Walk was a unique and successful one-night event, aimed at raising public awareness on the pressing issue of climate change, while sending a message of hope to Filipinos following the catastrophic effects of Super Typhoon Yolanda.
A joint endeavor by Headshot Clinic, the Climate Change Commission, together with Emmy-award winning Filipino producer Michael Carandang, and the support of Facial Care Centre’s Corporate Social Responsibility program, a digital exhibit of 100 faces captured the smiles of 22 families in four island provinces devastated by the super typhoon, which together, weaved a magnificent tapestry of human resilience.
Facial Care Centre’s newest face and Climate Change Commission ambassador, Bianca Gonzalez, hosted the event where she shared her experiences from the Earth Faces Visayas outreach project.
Besides the digital display, Emmy-award winning Fliipino producer and director, Michael Carandang premiered his Earth Faces feature presentation, which he turned over to Climate Change Commission secretary Lucille Sering.
The video aims to influence climate change policy, which is sorely lacking in the country. Carandang said he hopes his work may serve as a reminder of what has happened and what will continue to happen to the Philippines and the rest of the world if things remain as they are.
