On January 27, 2021, the Philippine Social Science Council and the Oscar M. Lopez Center held The Climate Dialogues: Bolstering Climate Action with Social Science via Zoom and Facebook Live.
Focusing on how the social sciences can help in and contribute to solving climate change, this event continued the initial brainstorming with social scientists last October, which generated a number of questions and concerns on climate change from the perspective of the social sciences.
The conversations were moderated by Prof. Flordeliz Abanto and featured representatives from different social science disciplines, including Dr. Rosalie Arcala Hall (Political Science), Dr. Helen Dayo (Anthropology), Mr. Jim Duran (Communication), Atty. Alex Gamboa (Law), Dr. Emmanuel Luna (Community Development), Dr. Rene Ofreneo (Labor / Industrial Relations), and Dr. Oliver Sta. Ana (Psychology).
