Senator Pia Cayetano, Chairperson of the Senate Committee on Sustainable Development, personally attended the event and stressed the importance of true sustainability in all sectors, including gender, education, and health policies to successfully achieve the SDGs.
The event featured three main presentations: Creating a Smoke-Free Generation; 5 Things Cities Get Wrong About Mobility; and the Galing Pook Foundation Best Practices Awards. The latter recognized the best practices of LGUs in local governance in promoting sustainable development.
The event's successful hosting showcased the City of Taguig's commitment to sustainability and the importance of collaboration among LGUs in achieving sustainable development.
