Legazpi City Mayor Opts for Climate Mitigation in Call to Challenge

This Urban October, Legazpi City takes its “Fun and Adventure” motif a step further by responding to the Mayors’ Challenge to showcase urban sustainability initiatives. Nominated by Ormoc Mayor Richard Gomez, Legazpi City Mayor Noel Rosal led a back-to-back community coastal cleanup and mangrove planting activity participated by city government employees and local townsfolk. Trash-free coasts with lush mangrove forests not only support life below water (SDG 14) but also contribute to improved water quality (SDG 6) and climate mitigation (SDG 13). For the Legazpeños, picking up litter along the coast is already a way of life, a lifestyle that allows them to care for and enjoy the beautiful ridge-to-reef system they have been blessed with.
