beatricetulagan | writer & climate justice organizer

Hi, my name is Beatrice Tulagan.

I'm a writer and climate justice organizer with almost a decade of experience in organizing, communications, policy research, and training design in the climate advocacy space. I am passionate about building a regenerative movement for a just energy transition in Asia that centers climate and social justice. I connect activists towards cross-country campaigns, creative collaborations, and solidarity amidst social and environmental shocks.

Currently, I work as the Senior Regional Organizing Specialist for in Asia, where I design and deliver trainings for our network, support local campaigns and convene network spaces alongside grassroots and youth organizers as well as regional partners and organizations to strengthen common campaigning strategies.

I've contributed personal essays and opinion articles to various publications, such as Manila Standard, Asia Sentinel and OpenGlobalRights, among others. Through my writing, which featured frontline communities and youth leaders going up against fossil fuel interests, I have been awarded media fellowships under FRIDA The Young Feminist Fund and Climate Tracker.

I’ve handled policy advocacy, communications, and youth leadership responsibilities for organizations like Parabukas and The Climate Reality Project in the Philippines. I also hold Certificates in Leadership, Organizing and Action as well as Public Narrative: Leadership, Storytelling, and Action from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, Executive Education, on track to finishing with an Executive Certificate in Nonprofit Leadership in 2023 upon completion of my third program.

I recently re-launched The Very Best of Us, a newsletter imagining care, hope and solidarity as we collectively confront the climate crisis and other social shocks. It explores leaning into vulnerability as an organizing practice, activism as finding strength in tenderness as much as we find it in resistance, and holding our loved ones close as we hold out hope for people and planet.
