The photos here speak volumes as tons of rubbish was regurgitated along Roxas Boulevard including inner streets clogging water ways and sewerage system. More than 1.75 million people displaced and over 1,000 people dead. Billions lost as work and classes were suspended and properties damaged. Just a few days before Typhoon Maring strikes we saw oil spilt along the waters of Visayas.
The onslaught of unparalleled natural disasters wreck human lives including fishing farms, crops and livestock so that access to basic things people need to live have become increasingly challenging. Indeed there is so much work to do as all aspects of our human lives is threatened by climate change and irresponsibility. It is enough to kill one person, family, or community. This is quite alarming. And quite alarming it is if we don’t care about it at all or don’t do anything at least within the sphere of our control. The question is how might we then transform education and businesses for the greater benefit of community? Can we create sustainable businesses while contributing to social equity and environmental well-being?
