DOT-Davao director: Sa malahutayong turismo

SI TANYA Rabat-Tan nag-adbokar sa pagkamalahutayon nga iya sab nga gisunod sa ilang panimalay ug trabaho.

Nagadala siya og refillable water bottle, naga-recycle, ug gabahin-bahin sa basura.

Tuod man, siya ang nagpaluyo sa Mati City’s Solid Waste Integrated Management (Swim).

Ang breakthrough project gipatuman una pa man ang gidungog nga rehabilitasyon sa Boracay.

“Swim aims to address coastal degradation of the Pujada Bay and the Dahican stretch caused by irresponsible solid waste disposal practices and illegal structures in the areas. These areas are major sources of livelihood for many and major tourism attractions of Mati. Dahican is a famous skim and surf site and home to the dugongs, dolphins, pawikans, (and) whale sharks. While the Philippine Eagle soars the skies of Pujada Bay and nests at Mt. Hamiguitan Natural Heritage Park,” suma niya.

Natunong sab nga ang programa sa Department of Tourism mao ang “sustainable tourism”.

Tuod siya ang napiling Department of Tourism (DOT)-Davao director diin siya nakabaton og mas dakong lawak alang sa iyang adbokasiya.

Ang DOT-Davao mipatuman sa maong kampanya, diin gihingusgan sab nila ang information drive alang sa kinatibuk-ang pagsabot sa kadaghanan.

“The regional office has initiated several training programs and workshops for tourism enterprise, local government units (LGUs) and other tourism and hospitality organizations to advocate and embrace sustainability and resilience. We have engaged them in sustainability projects and we take part in it. We want to instill awareness by spearheading programs and being involved.”

Ang pagtuman sa pag-recycle, reusing ug pagkunhod sa paggamit og plastik dako na kaayong kapaingnan sa kampanya.

Ang Green projects, sama sa tree planting ug coastal clean ups, mga maayong inisyatibo. Apan, ang DOT nagdasig sa pribadong sektor nga buhaton kini matag karon ug unya.

Ang “sustainability” nagtutok sab sa preserbasyon ug promoasyon sa lokal nga kultura.

Ang Davao Region may 18 ka tribu, ug matag usa niini pinasahi.

Ang DOT nagdasig sa LGU ug mga stakeholders nga isubay ang ilang proyekto sa kampanya sa DOT.

“I believe tourism is not just about destinations. More than the sights and sounds, it is the experience of immersing oneself with the local culture that makes the trip worthwhile. This is what I want to focus on,” ni Tanya.

Ang adbokasiya ni Tanya, mituhop sab diha sa iyang pagsunod sa uso.

“My closet has pieces that I bought ten years ago which I use regularly. Durability, cost and style that transcends trends are major considerations. I rarely shop, but when I do it’s to replace a worn out piece,” suma ni Tanya.

“I’m very cost conscious and OC on choice of material. I prefer basic pieces I can mix and match, and can take me from work to evening functions. One of the brands I’m a big fan of is M&S. You’d be surprise as to how much of this label occupies my closet.”
