After almost six months of preparations and activities, the ATO held its final community capacity building workshop and mangrove planting activity as part of its Mag-aba Mangrove Reforestation Project (MMRP) last 20-21 May 2018.
For ATO, pursuing social and creative activism is not just to campaign a certain concept but also putting concept into action. Its project for climate change education titled,” ClimatEducate Project” started in April 2016 and now has members from almost 11 countries in six world regions. Recently, it launched its first community-based project, Mag-aba Mangrove Reforestation Project in January 2018.
