Launch of Resilience: Survive and Thrive TM University-wide Tournament
The symposium commenced with the launch of Resilience: Survive and Thrive TM University-wide Tournament on 7 October. Resilience: Survive and Thrive TM is a tabletop card game that aims to teach its players the lessons of balanced development and resiliency under the climate change lens. This ingenious initiative is the brainchild of the BaR-C2 Project of the University of Philippines (UP) in collaboration with Balangay Entertainment with the goal of introducing the concept of climate change and extreme weather events among the youth. It is also envisioned that schools will adopt the use of this game as part of their curriculum.
