April 21 – 22, 2013 On April 21 to 22, Cebuanos gathered to celebrate Earth Day through an event organized by various groups and organizations dubbed as “Earth Day Green Festival 2013,” the first ever in Cebu. The people behind the event believe that more like minded people can get together to promote a greener lifestyle through the festival. The festival lined up a set of events and workshops such as Cebu Green Lungs Bike & Board Tour (April 21), a bike ride that invited bicyclists, skateboarders and even families to participate in the environmental campaign. Other activities included the Vinyasa Yoga, a free yoga session for the participants to appreciate healthy living, and Green Festival Workshops (April 22) that educated the Cebuano community about certain initiatives on promoting local production of renewable materials and green technologies. The festival culminated with an awards ceremony recognizing leaders focused on sustainable community development: Rye Kido, Dr. Rhodora Bucoy and Atty. Golly Ramos.
