COACH, Environment & Sustainability
Albert was born in the Philippines and relocated to Canada as a child. Albert is grounded on both worlds; Canada and the Philippine. As Albert follows the weather pattern around the world, he is especially saddened by how the Philippines are being hit by storms and typhoons more regularly and in greater severity. He feels strongly that this is all connected to climate change.
