Recently, Gina de Venecia hosted Women in Media’s Hollywood-inspired Christmas party at her new home in South Forbes Park, Makati City.

She capped the year by representing our country in a world forum on ecological safety in Bali, Indonesia. Her other advocacies include naming the “malunggay” as a national vegetable, and building facilities for humanitarian endeavors.

Last Dec. 11, Gina spoke at the Second World Ecological Safety Assembly in Bali, about her projects to combat climate change.
