The Importance Of Clearing Rivers

Rivers are important part of human lives. But unfortunately, only few are aware of its importance. The proof: tons of trash in our rivers and creeks, making it look and smell like a dumpsite.

Working together to give Metro Cebu a makeover

What do you want Mega Cebu to be by 2050?

By this year, we hope to see a competitive Cebu, especially the 13 cities and municipalities under the metropolitan area. By competitiveness, we mean that constituents will be able to see attractive urban centers as well as preserved and revitalized historic areas.
