Yesterday was the first day of the Climate Change Adaptation Forum at the ADB. It was good to be back for more learning on how I can do my share to adapt to climate change.
But first, breakfast. I had Vietnamese sardines, cheese omelette, rice, and coffee.
Then, it was time for the sessions at the auditorium.
I learned that we must shift from mere risk management to transformation. A transformation mindset will help us change our lifestyle in order to be more eco-friendly and energy efficient. That way, we will be “forced” to do what is inconvenient in order to face the reality that we must care for the environment more
We must also approach problems as opportunities in these changing times.
It was also a treat to see my idol from the 90’s, Antoinette Taus. She is now an environmentalist and she performed during the event.
I opted to have a vegetarian lunch for a change.
I even managed to crochet during the break.
I had ADB’s oatmeal cookies for lunch. They were delicious!
We had the cocktail reception at Crowne Plaza.
It turned out to be a night of Filipino food, beer, and music!
I enjoyed Day 1 and I can’t wait for more learning sessions in the next couple of days!
