It’s been a busy month for the Agam team.
We started by streamlining our social media brand to reflect the growing recognition of the bigger role that Agam wants to play in sparking conversations about climate change through our focus on art and stories. Hence, we are now known as Agam Agenda to signify how the project has grown from its humble beginnings in 2014 when the Institute for Climate and Sustainable Cities (ICSC) released the award-winning book, Agam: Filipino Narratives on Uncertainty and Climate Change.
Just recently, we just launched Agam the Climate Podcast featuring several authors from the first book. We had conversations about a wide range of topics from the authors’ thoughts on climate change, to their creative process, to their chosen superhero powers, and to the power of stories and the role of artists, cultural workers, and writers in the growing climate change movement.
You can also look forward to more updates on the upcoming Agam International, a book focusing on climate discourses from Africa, Asia and the Pacific, and Latin America and the Carribean. We’re happy to share that we already have Ramon Sunico on board as Regional Lead for Asia and the Pacific while Alexandra Walter and Rehana Roussouw are the Regional Leads for Latin America and Caribbean and Africa, respectively.
I hope you are as excited as we are for our upcoming events.
