Debating Environmental Issues in the First Cebu Energy and Environment Sustainability Forum

Climate change is a very real phenomenon that is steadily affecting the all aspects of living all over the world. What is causing the change? How can it affect us? What could we do as individuals and as a society to lessen the harm? Are there issues directly relevant to Cebu?

These and other questions were answered at the first E+E=Sustainability Energy and Environment Summit, held at the Marco Polo Plaza Hotel last Dec. 4. Guided by its objectives to debate and discuss key issues that surround Cebu’s unstable power supply sources, the province’s needs for economic growth, and the inescapable need to address climate change, the event was held a few days before the 15th Conference of the Parties on Climate Change in Denmark (COP15), where a replacement for the Kyoto Protocol was introduced.

The event is also supported by the Cebu Energy Development Corp., Aboitiz Power, the Visayan Electric Company, the Cebu Daily News, Pilipinas Shell, and Petron.
