2023 Organic Congress: A rally for sustainable development
The Municipality of Sibagat hosted the 2023 Organic Congress at the Sibagat Center for Culture and Arts. The event was aimed to establish Organic Agriculture as the norm rather than the alternative in this part of the Caraga region.
Hope echoed around the community when hundreds of participants came to rally with the farmers and local officials. Vice Mayor Maria Liza L. Evangelista, Co-chair of the banner program, considered the event as a breakthrough as neighboring municipalities, advocates, and relevant partners. More and more townsfolk and community stakeholders are becoming involved in taking action on sustainable development through this advocacy.
As a springboard for sustainable promotion, Sibagat puts the trust not just to the farmers, but to every citizen including the youth population who are endlessly recognized and encouraged to take part in local governance. This is Sibagat’s competitive advantage considering the increasing number of youth campaigners.
In time of crisis, Sibagat leaders believe that every little step contribute to a greater chance of healing the native soil. And with local innovations within grassroots communities, links are strengthened making support programs visible.
With public support and cooperation, the municipality clearly accepts the challenge and looks forward to effective results in the future.
