“ THE CITY IN A FOREST”


“Hello” My name is Toné McGuire.
 I would like to take you on an adventure that goes from Volcano Hawaii, Bali Indonesia , Cebu Philippines, and ends up in Puerto Princesa Palawan, also known as “ THE CITY IN A FOREST”.

I started making a movie about the different festivals that the islands in the Pacific celebrated with their costumes, music, cultures.
 I called Netflix and they said “Sure” we would be glad to show your movie it sounds very interesting..

Little did I know that I would meet Edward S. Hagedorn, then the mayor of Puerto Princesa, and he would introduce me to his world of environmental change.

That I would stop making the travel movie and change it to a movie about Edwards city, and what he has done. I was seeing a politician that was like none I had seen in the USA.

 Everything he did was for helping his people or his city and environment. 5:30am I would be picked up by a driver and brought back
at 1:30 to 2 am everyday…


I would witness then mayor Edward Hagedorn going to one barangay after another helping with all their problems and taking as long as needed to resolve them. I was with him on his birthday when he encourages everyone wanting to give him a birthday presents to donate to
hospitals instead.

 At each hospital behind closed doors he would pay the bills of the needy…

 Join us in watching this movie and seeing how one man truly made a difference in this world.
Changing the environment and peoples lives in

“ THE CITY IN A FOREST.”

 
Edward Solon Hagedorn
Edward Solon Hagedorn

Edward Solon Hagedorn (October 12, 1946 – October 3, 2023)
was a Filipino politician who was the mayor of Puerto PrincesaPhilippines, and later the representative of 
Palawan's 3rd congressional district.

Hagedorn, also an environmentalist and anti-mining advocate,[1] served as city mayor of Puerto Princesa for two decades, only interrupted by a year since the Constitution set the limit at three consecutive three-year terms. He was first elected in 1992 and served until 2001 when he ran for governor of Palawan and lost; but was elected mayor again through the 2002 recall election, whose victory was later allowed by the Supreme Court,[2] and continued to serve until 2013.[3] He lost in his attempts in later elections, in Senate in 2013, as well as returning to mayorship in a 2015 recall and in 2016In 2022, he was elected representative of Palawan's 3rd legislative district.[2]
 

Hagedorn's leadership was directed towards establishing harmony between the environment and development.[4][5] The mayor was credited with establishing the city as a model of eco-tourism
 for the country.[4]

His leadership was noted for Puerto Princesa, the capital of Palawan, being declared in 2007 a highly urbanized city, thus independent of the province;[4] and for the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park being included in the New 7 Wonders of Nature.[2]

His administration enforced policies and programs, mainly in environmental management[11] as well as community-centered development.[21] Reforms were made in Puerto Princesa, especially within his first four years in office.[8]
 

The city gained popularity, as it became a major eco-tourism destination[8] and a model in environmental protection.[7] In 1996, it was placed in the Hall of Fame for being the country's "cleanest and greenest" component city.[8][7][21]
 

The city was transformed into the country's safest, with the lowest crime rate, mainly due to decrease of smuggling and illegal logging,[8] both related to his advocacy of environmental activities. This resulted to, among other things, an increase of forest cover to over 2,000 hectares.[22] On the other hand, the city was successfully made jueteng-free by 2003.[6]
 

Hagedorn was an advocate of the Bantay Dagat program, initially implemented in Palawan and later adopted in other areas in the country following a legislation.[7] He was also responsible for another law in which the city's move of declaring a state of calamity without the president's announcement was eventually adapted nationwide,[9] thus allowing local government units to do so, which was enacted to support his initiative of stopping kaingin (slash and burn). As mayor, he had to use the calamity fund to provide alternative livelihood for affected farmers, the subject of later criminal charges which was then dismissed upon enactment of the said law.[11]
 

It was also during his term when the Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR) was declared as a national park, and later, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.[9] In 2011, PPUR was declared one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature,[7] triggering a growth in the tourism business, particularly in tourist arrivals.[11] The same year, the city was declared by the Association of Southeast Asian Nations as the region's first carbon-neutral city.[11][21]
 

Also, Puerto Princesa became 
independent from the provincial government.[9]
