CELEBRATING INTERNATIONAL YOUTH WEEK

Pursuant to Republic Act No. 10742, Section 30 of the Sangguniang Kabataan Reform Act of 2015 mandates the observance of Linggo ng Kabataan in every barangay, municipality, city and province on the second week of August falls to coincide with the International Youth Week.

This year, Linggo ng Kabataan 2021 will be centered around the International Youth Day 2021’s theme: Transforming Food Systems: Youth Innovation for Human and Planetary Health. Hosted by Pambayang Pederasyon ng mga Sangguniang Kabataan in partnership with the local Government Unit, this year’s Linggo ng Kabataan celebration aims to highlight the meaningful participation of the young people in restoring the planet and protecting life, while integrating biodiversity in the transformation of food systems.

To restore the planet and protect life, the youth from the municipality participated in Padyak Kabataan; a unity ride and tree planting activity held at Donya Aurora Park, Brgy. Labi, Bongabon. The activity also aims to develop awareness on climate change and environmental protection among youth and to provide an alternative activity for the youth while we are still under the community quarantine.

Mayor Gamilla recognized the contribution of the youth in our community. He also encouraged the youth to continue this kind of activities that uplift the quality of our living environment through active planting, proper maintenance and preservation of trees together with other vegetation.
