Got interviewed today about Liloan's tree planting programs, recognized by the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, Inc. (RAFI) as a widely successful partner of its Run 2 Plant Greenin Philippines Program.
Liloan's programs have been institutionalized and implemented from the Municipal to Purok level, and participated in every year by multi-sectoral representatives. Tens of thousands of seedlings have been planted since its inception in 2008 during the first term of Mayor Duke Frasco Liloan, and it continues to this day.
We have also initiated the involvement of the business sector through Liloan's Environment Sustainability and Development Ordinance. If you do business in Liloan, we give you the opportunity to help the environment by requiring the planting of 5 seedlings per employee. As a result, as of 2016, over 26,000 seedlings have been planted by the business sector.
To further community involvement, we now also have an Adopt-a-Mountain, Adopt-a-Purok, and Adopt-a-Tree Program, making it easier for individuals and groups to participate in furthering our quest for sustainable development and environmental protection in Liloan.??❤️?? .
