The learners from Kaunlaran High School, Malabon National High School, and Rizal High School recognized their roles in responding to the climate crisis through their own commitment for the environment.

“Ang mundo ay entablado, tayo ang aktor dito. Ang buhay ay isang ensayo. Di pa sulat ang ating dulo.” Despite starting with an apocalyptic theme, the performers expressed hope for the future as heard in one of the songs during the show.
