Abstract: Climate condition is quite alarming to people and to the environment and natural disasters are common and perceivable nowadays. Lectures were being conducted to determine the levels of climate change awareness and risks among purposively selected San Miguel District Teachers and how informed they are or not about the existing environmental issues. The results show that there are significant differences between the results of pre-test and post-test of climate change and risks. Thus, the value of conducting information campaign plays a significant role for public awareness. The knowledge of teachers on climate change is potentials to educate elementary pupils on mitigating measures related to the lingering issue. There should be an intensive information campaign on climate change, its features, impacts, and mitigation measures or launch Information, Education and Communication (IEC) to the localities and different sectors of the society.
