Made possible through my Talk Climate internship with Climate Generation, I created a zine titled “ClimArtivism in the Philippines,” which explores climate change in the Philippines through the stories of Filipino climate art activists. Through these pages, you’ll delve into the stories, visions, and artworks that highlight the urgent need for environmental consciousness in one of the most biodiverse regions on the planet. You can flip through the zine digitally online or view the PDF below.
Ramier Villarama (he/him) was born in the Philippines, but moved to New Jersey with his family at a young age. He is a current rising third-year student at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN. In addition to being a part of the Men’s Swimming and Diving team, he is a double major in Environmental Studies and Studio Art, with a minor in Asian Studies and a concentration in Food, Agriculture, and Society. He has been recently learning more about his Filipino culture and his relationship with nature, and has been connecting both with his art and the work that he creates.
