Vigan Mayor Chooses Inclusion and Tradition in Mayors’ Challenge

An inclusive economy is fundamental to urban sustainability, as Mayor Medina of Vigan City shows us in his #MayorsChallengePh entry. The city provides livelihood opportunities to persons with disabilities who work as loom weavers specializing in “Abel Iloko”, the traditional weaving culture of Vigan. PWDs enjoy productive employment while keeping tradition alive. Craftsmanship and reduced inequalities are at the heart of Vigan’s vibrancy! #UrbanOctoberPh #SDG8 #SDG10
