2 global environment events set this month
by DENR release

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources will lead the local celebration of two global environmental events this September, the International Coastal Cleanup Day and the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer.

DENR Sec. Roy A. Cimatu called on Filipinos to take part in the twin celebration seeking to raise public awareness on the protection of the seas and the ozone layer, both will be held on Sept. 16.

“These two global environmental events will not only educate Filipinos about the current situation of the environment, but also heighten the consciousness of the public on the dangers that may come if we do not properly take care of our water resources and the ozone layer,” Cimatu said.

With the theme “Sama-sama para sa karagatan,” this year’s International Coastal Cleanup Day is organized by the DENR’s Biodiversity Management Bureau, in partnership with the International Coastal Cleanup Philippines under the Washington-based  environmental advocacy group Ocean Conservancy, and the Philippine Coast Guard.

The institutional partners include the departments of the Interior and Local Government, Education, Transportation, Public Works and Highways, and Tourism.

Now on its 31st year, the event aims to engage people to remove trash from beaches and waterways around the world, identify the sources of the debris and change the behavioral patterns that contribute to pollution.

The DENR advises participants in clean-up activities to bring their own industrial or garden gloves, reusable containers and utensils, and wear comfortable clothes. Children aged 16 years old and below are discouraged to join the activity.

The observance of the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer coincides with the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Montreal Protocol, an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of numerous substances that are responsible for ozone depletion.

This year’s theme is “Caring for the life under the sun” and the Environmental Management Bureau has lined up seminars and workshops on the inventory of greenhouse gases in relation to the country’s commitment to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the Montreal Protocol and the Kigali Agreement.

A global climate deal reached in Rwanda last year, the Kigali Agreement is an amendment to the 1987 Montreal Protocol which aims to phaseout hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs, a family of potent greenhouse gases by the late 2040s.

On Sept. 14, the United Nations Environment Programme will launch the website for its newest campaign www.ozoneheroes.org, as well as #OzoneHeroes that will be used in social media to raise awareness on the accomplishments of the Montreal Protocol.

The International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer is intended to spread awareness of the depletion of the ozone and search for solutions to preserve it.
