Surigao Norte joins "Clean-up the World" drive

The provincial government of Surigao del Norte successfully staged a one-day province-wide clean up drive dubbed as "Clean Up Surigao… Clean Up the World" just recently with the theme "Start Today… Save Tomorrow. Clean Up Our Climate."

The activity aimed at inspiring and assisting communities to clean-up, fix up and conserve their local environment through carrying out initiatives such as waste removal, tree planting and water and energy conservation projects.

The "Clean Up Surigao… Clean Up the World" involved the different sectors in the community such as the academe, business, and religious sectors including Non-Government Organizations (NGO's) in the conduct of a clean up drive on sea beaches, rivers, canals, drainage systems, and other public areas that would minimize the litter problem, improve the quality of waters, prevent the spread of diseases and consequently contribute towards a cleaner and healthier province.

Gov. Robert Ace Barbers in his short message thanked all the stakeholders throughout the city and province for participating in the said event.

Meantime, Prov'l Environment and Management Office (PEMO) OIC, Antonieto Charcos, in a radio interview bared the membership of the province to the Clean Up the World, an international environmental organization based in Australia mobilizing an estimated 35 million volunteers from more than 100 countries.

Clean Up Surigao formed part of the Clean Up the World, a year-round community-led environment campaign that takes place in local communities. Charcos also added that this is now the second time the province joined in the activity. (PEMO/PIA)
