Spirit of Bohol

THE SPIRIT OF BOHOL, A CONSENSUS FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE

We are all a people in crisis either in economic or moral sense or both. This is heightened by the National Events that are unfolding. Like the debate between economic development and environmental interests, there are no simple solutions... only enlightened choices.

The need to strike a balance between environmental conservation and development is one of the greatest challenges facing us today. For a good quality of life to exist, Boholanos must have the assurance of a healthy environment and stable economic climate to sustain us into the future.
This is the kind of development we need. Fundamentally, we are looking here at the re-invention of an agency tasked to utilize and distribute a natural resource. This question has to be asked- was there a consensus process undertaken? Where all significant interest represented and respected? Did it allow the parties involved to design a process appropriate to their special circumstances and needs?

Our contribution as a people to the nation's progress and development is simply for us to develop and prosper ourselves. We have the resources, but what it takes is to act now! We must arrive at a consensus beneficial to all sectors of Boholanos. We must dedicate our efforts to that purpose and must foster environmental and economic policy that will result in the forging of intelligent decisions to create 'wealth' for our beloved Bohol. As a people, we must undertake the initiative. We can contribute our resources and make a difference.

Together, we can implement the kind of development that will guarantee a bright outlook for us and for the future generation. We call on all the other participants to the Spirit of Bohol launching almost a decade ago.
