WeatherPhilippines Foundation recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Knowledge Channel Foundation, which aims to promote disaster resilience among schools and instill the #WeatherWiser mindset in today’s young generation.
The partnership will benefit selected public schools nationwide under the Knowledge Channel’s Learning Effectively through Enhanced Pedagogies (LEEP) Program.
Through this partnership, Knowledge Channel will be including WeatherPhilippines’ educational videos such as “Weather Wizards” and “#WeatherWiser Knba?” as part of their content for the Learning Effectively through Enhanced Pedagogy (LEEP) program. Aside from this, they will also be uploading WeatherPhilippines content in Knowledge Channel’s online learning portal – www.knowledgechannel.org and YouTube channel. They will also be supporting the #WeatherWiser campaign through interviews and featured stories.
As WeatherPhilippines’ media partner, Knowledge Channel will be provided with weather information such as informative videos, meteorological articles, and weather updates. The foundation will also be facilitating trainings for Knowledge Channel’s team and beneficiaries for better understanding of weather jargons.
“WeatherPhilippines was organized to empower communities to optimize weather knowledge in making informed decisions for disaster resilience. In this partnership with Knowledge Channel, we are hoping to get more leverage so that we’ll continue with our mission of making communities safer, sustainable, and empowered,” said WeatherPhilippines First Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Maribeth Marasigan.
“With this collaboration with WeatherPhilippines, we will be able to bring to the teachers a better way of teaching and processing weather information. We are also looking forward to sharing this to our student beneficiaries, to make them realize that there is a career in this kind of industry,” said Knowledge Channel President and Executive Director Rina Lopez-Bautista.
