Confirming the commitment to continue working on actions that contribute to the care and protection of the environment and natural resources, the Municipal Government led by Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña, commemorated World Environment Day with various activities.
In a ceremony, which also recognized the career and contribution of Dr. Juan Luis Cifuentes Lemus, the Director of Urban Development and Environment, José Fernando López Márquez, representing the mayor of Vallarta, said that the planet can not withstand what is happening currently. The indifference that exists on the care of the environment is already changing the lives of our loved ones.
He pointed out that citizens must recognize and understand the protection of nature, because the main economic activity of Puerto Vallarta resides directly from the relationship with the planet, given that water, air, as well as the mountain, the beach, and the sun, are the most important natural beauties that Puerto Vallarta offers.
He indicated that one of the main objectives of the current city government is the work on protection and education in the care of the environment, with climate change being one of the greatest risks and challenges to face, with a plan of actions that simultaneously involves the participation of all, because it is necessary to unite consciences and energies to make a single team.
He said that the Municipal Government will continue working in the care of beaches, rivers, and mountains, as well as providing quality services that generate a clean and healthy municipality, joining efforts and resources.
On behalf of the City Council, the official gave recognition to Dr. Juan Luis Cifuentes Lemus, for his invaluable career in the conservation and research of the region’s natural resources.
Cifuentes Lemus gave thanks for the recognition and invited the young people to choose by vocation what they want to be in the future, in addition to sharing a brief review on the commemoration of World Environment Day, celebrated on June 5.
Students of Josefina Chávez San Juan High School, presented the poetry “After all we may be brothers”, and as part of the activities that are scheduled in the framework of the commemoration, they scheduled beach cleaning at Estero Boca de Tomates next Friday and Saturday in the Pitillal River, starting at 8:30 in the morning.
