Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Region 10 (DENR 10) spearheads the “Challenge for Change Program (CCP): CDO Limpyo Dagat Contest” as part of its continuing effort to intensify the environmental protection consciousness of the people and generate greater participation in the conservation and management of environment, particularly the Macajalar Bay. CCP is a social media campaign to encourage people to keep the environment clean and free from trashes.

DENR 10 escalates the said campaign in a contest format in relation to this year’s Month of the Ocean theme “Free the Sea from Marine Debris.” The agency encourages all coastal barangays of this city to undertake regular clean-up activities to save the Macajalar Bay. Also, to promote a sustainable partnership among the City Local Government Unit (LGU), private sectors, academe, religious institutions and relevant National Government Agencies.

The contest will be conducted through regular clean-up activities along the coastal barangays in this city such as Bulua, Bayabas, Bonbon, Macabalan, Puntod, Lapasan, Gusa, Cugman, Tablon, Agusan, Puerto and Bugo. It is open to all local stakeholders willing to clean, mobilize coastal communities and improve the coastal areas. A group of not less than 15 members, coined as CCP Cooperators, may select any of the coastal barangays mentioned and lead the conduct of regular clean-up activities therein. Clean-up sites will be monitored twice every month from June to September 2019 by the assigned judging committee.

The awarding of winners will be on September 21, 2019 in consonance to the celebration of International Coastal Clean-up Day (Presidential Proclamation No. 470.) CCP Cooperators will be judged according to the cleanliness of the coastal barangays they selected, innovations undertaken by them to mobilize the coastal communities and consistency of cleaning efforts through the attendance of members and regular clean-up activities conducted.

DENR 10 encourages the coastal residents and other local stakeholders to be responsible in keeping and throwing their trashes in order to maintain the aesthetic beauty of our ocean and thereby protect the marine life ecosystem. #TayoAngKalikasan RSCIS MR No. 06-157-2019
