Catbalogan councilor attends world mobility congress in Taiwan

City Councilor Beethoven “Bembot” Bermejo was Catbalogan City’s representative last October 02-04, 2017 to the Ecomobility World Festival 2017 and Ecomobility World Congress 2017 in Koahsiung, Chinese Taipei by invitation ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, which Catbalogan is an active member.

The Ecomobility World Congress 2017 Kaohsiung series enables local and international actors, united by a shared interest in sustainable transportation, to come together to share good practices and spark synergies in a setting that promotes creative collaboration, local initiatives and the EcoMobility agenda under the theme of “Liveable, Shared and Intelligent: A Platform for Ecomobile Change.”

The EcoMobility World Festival is a concept initiated by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability as a challenge for visionary city leaders to take up. The concept is based on depicting the future of mobility in real time with real people in a real city for an entire calendar month. In this one month cities undergoing the EcoMobility festival project shall encourage the use of ecomobility in the neighbourhood, by discouraging use of personal automobiles.

“This is one opportunity for Catbalogan City to learn from other cities on how they implemented ecological mobility as a sustainable development measure, which our city needs to address” Mayor Stephany Uy-Tan shares.

Councilor Bermejo also sits as an Ex-Officio Board Member of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of the Provincial Government of Samar being the Provincial Federation President of the Philippine Councilors League (PCL) while sitting as the Vice-Chairperson of the Publications and Communications Committee as one of the standing committees of the National PCL.

Catbalogan City is currently formalizing its EcoMobility Plan as part of its commitment to sustainable development with the help of ICLEI and with the abled leadership of Mayor Step.

ICLEI is the leading global network of more than 1,500 cities, towns and regions committed to building a sustainable future.
