The orange formation ensures that the municipality is integrated into the Spanish Network of Cities for Climate and that of Local Governments + Biodiversity
Citizens has managed to add the municipality to the two most relevant national networks on environmental and ecosystem protection and diversity.
The formation has approved its motion - only with the vote against Vox - so that San Pedro del Pinatar ends up integrating into the Spanish Network of Cities for Climate and the Network of Local Governments + Biodiversity, both sponsored by the Spanish Federation of Municipalities and Provinces.
âIf we want to stop being a reference for pollution and the loss of unique ecosystems such as our Mar Menor, and become a city that leads the fight against climate change and maintains its tourist character, it is essential to join as many organizations as support us in this objective â, highlighted the local orange spokesman, José Luis Ros.
"Unfortunately, in recent years the image of San Pedro del Pinatar is negatively linked to the lack of respect for the environment or pollution, especially by the Mar Menor crisis," added the liberal mayor, who believes that "It's time to start changing that perception."
In his view, "the goal is to leave nothing to do to save our Mar Menor, also at the local level."
The Spanish Network of Cities for Climate coordinates and promotes local policies to combat climate change, allowing to achieve better results in mitigating their effects.
For its part, the Network of Local Governments + Biodiversity aims to create a stable framework that promotes and promotes at the local level âprograms for the conservation and promotion of biodiversity, the protection of the water environment or the restoration of degraded natural spaces, as is the case of the Mar Menor â.
Among other actions, these networks involve commitments to reduce emissions and pollution, technical advice and the implementation of plans in collaboration with other municipalities to protect the environment and fight against climate change.
