The Quezon City government is supporting the initiative of the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) to rehabilitate and preserve the Manila Bay and other water and river systems of the metropolis.
Mayor Herbert M. Bautista is set to lead the QC contingents in the Metro-wide waterways clean-up dubbed as “One Day One Bay” on November 26 (Saturday) from 6 in the morning to 12 in the afternoon.
The event is set to unite all people in the 17 cities in Metro Manila from across all economic sectors for a common cause to clean up the waterways and river system that lead to Manila Bay.
According to DILG, the “One Day One Bay” activity will mark the start of an annual coastal clean-up aimed to fuel the Filipino spirit and showcase people’s unity to care for the environment.
Earlier, QC government had also supported efforts to address climate change together with the so-called Alliance of 7 (A7) by promoting the use of bicycle as means of transportation to keep the air clean.
During the event dubbed as “Padyak for CDRR (Climate Change and Disaster Risk Reduction)” is a cycling caravan aimed to promote the role of bike as CDRR tool.
Other LGU members of the alliance are Marikina, Pasig, Antipolo, Cainta, Rodriguez and San Mateo. Maureen Quiñones, PAISO
