World Environment Day is celebrated every June 5 around the world. This years celebration carries the theme: “Beat Air Pollution”.
In a short program after the parade, Minister Abdulraof Macacua of the BARMM’s Ministry of Environment, Natural Resources and Energy (MENRE) reminded the audience “of our responsibility to be a good Calipha (Islamic steward) of our environment. We have been entrusted with the responsibility to manage, conserve and develop these God-given wealth.”
Macacua also invited everyone to participate in a coastal clean-up that will be spearheaded by the MENRE. It will be held on June 27 at the Kusiong Beach, Datu Odin Sinsuat, Maguindanao.
