Ikaapat na linggo ng Nobyembre, idineklara na ‘National Bicycle Day’
Idineklara ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte ang ikaapat na linggo ng Nobyembre kada taon bilang “National Bicycle Day.”
Ayon kay Environment Secretary Roy Cimatu, base sa Proclamation 1052 na nilagdaan ng Pangulo, pinasisiguro nito ang ecological integrity, at clean and healthy environment.
“We are very happy that the President recognized the necessity on the use of bicycle as something that can contribute in making our environment more livable and freer from pollution,” pahayag ni Cimatu.
Ayon kay Cimatu, dahil sa proklamasyon, lalo pang mapaiigting ng DENR ang implementasyon ng Republic Act 8749 o Philippine Clean Air Act of 1999.
“With this development, we are certain that it will hugely contribute to the enforcement of the Clean Air Act and reduce pollution in the air that will benefit the present and future generations,” pahayag ni Cimatu.
“The proclamation will create a widespread awareness on the positive impact of non-motorized transportation to the environment, especially in improving air quality, which we have witnessed during the onset of COVID-19 where there are less cars on the road,” dagdag ng kalihim.
Inaatasan ang lahat ng tanggapan ng pamahalaan at pribadong sektor na makipagtulungan sa DENR
Unang ginanap ang National Bicycle Day noong November 2014 kung saan 30,000 cyclists ang nakiisa.
