MOSLIV, which stands for Most Sustainable and Liveable, serves as a guide to achieving the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) toward a global climate-neutral society by 2050 and an inspiration for those in key positions or roles of influence to advocate for responsible and earth-friendly or green practices.

And if that wasn’t momentous enough, the group also named Bagong Henerasyon Party-list Representative and House Deputy Speaker Bernadette Herrera as “Honorary Congresswoman of the Year”.

The awarding ceremony was held last Saturday, March 19, at the Grand Ballroom of Okada Manila in Parañaque City.

“From my first day in the halls of Congress, I have made it a priority to use my position to champion various causes, including environment and climate change such as the ban on single-use plastics, and I look forward to continuing this important work,” Herrera said in her acceptance speech.

The Houses leader, who is a reelectionist in the May 2022 polls, said she’s proud and honored to be among this year’s awardees who have been recognized for their contributions to nation-building.

“I sincerely believe that if all of us here will continue to exert efforts to make our country great in our own little way, we can surely achieve a brighter, more prosperous, and a truly sustainable and liveable Philippines,” she said.

“While I cherish and humbly accept this award, I honestly believe there is no better reward than seeing the smiles in the faces of the people whose lives we have helped improve,” she added while urging fellow awardees to continue to empower the lives of Filipinos.

In choosing Herrera as Honorary Congresswoman of the Year, the MOSLIV Awards cited her “exceptionally meritorious conduct in the performance of your service”.

It particularly recognized her efforts “to raise the profile of your party-list through action in collaboration championing sustainable projects in relation to human life, eradicate poverty and hunger, guaranteeing a healthy life, universalize access to basic services including development opportunities through inclusive education and decent work as well as principles that measure [SDGs]”.

Herrera, who is currently serving her second consecutive term as party-list lawmaker, believes she still has much work left to do.

“We have done a lot, but there’s much more we can do for our kababayans, especially in this time of the pandemic,” she said.
