Hosted by EIC Mikael Angelo Francisco, Ask Theory shines the spotlight on Pinoy scientific brilliance, in a fun and entertaining “kwentuhan” format. Each episode of Ask Theory  features a Pinoy scientist from one of the various scientific disciplines. In a very casual conversation, guests explain what they do in simple terms, as well as share their fascinating stories: how they got into science, the challenges they face, what motivates them to pursue their fields, what future scientists from the Philippines can look forward to, and so much more.

Episode 75: Mga Sustainability Initiatives: Pakitang-Tao Lang Ba Talaga?

Jonas Marie Dumdum is a registered chemist and sustainability science and policy advocate. He volunteers as coordinator for the Energy SubCluster of The Climate Reality Project Philippines.
