Climate Walk Urges LGU to pass Local Ordinance banning Coal

Negros Occidental – Negrosanon youths walk to raise awareness and urge local government units to pass local ordinance banning coal-fired power plants and supporting Renewable Energy in the Province on April 16, 2019.

Young advocates enjoin themselves to encourage Negrosanons to utilize clean, sustainable and renewable energy, dubbed as the Lakbayan Para sa REporma.

“It is our hope that through this climate walk, we may encourage more Negrosanons to join us with the call,” Awit shares with aspiration. ”We walked from the Provincial Lagoon towards the Cities of Talisay and Silay,” she adds.

Alongside Climate Walks, advocates hand-in proposed local ordinances to the Cities of Talisay and Silay in support with the proposed ordinance in the province, “An Ordinance Positioning the City as a Coal-Free City thus Prohibiting the Exploration, Establishment and Operation of any Coal-Fired Power Plants in the City.”

Information, Education, and Communication Campaigns, and the Creation of the Local Energy Board were included in the proposed ordinance.

“We will be organizing more Climate Walks in the coming weeks to reach more Local Government Units,” Awit concludes/Kevin Gaitan, Y4CH-NYLI
