I work with Pedro Walpole, and our group's name is Environmental Science for Social Change (ESSC). Appreciate the value you put in our work, and yes, at the end of the day, we are talking about social justice, although that's not in our group's name :-) Thanks for giving space and time to Pedro to share the work he's done in the Philippines! Still a long way to go though.
