In the spirit of important discussions, the Polytechnic University of the Philippines is holding a whole day seminar about the country’s issues with an event entitled, “The Missing Piece: Digging Into The Contemporary Issues on Peace.”
Joined by distinguished journalists, educators, and government officials from the Office of the Presidential Adviser on the Peace process, the sessions are expected to be filled with knowledge about the severity of the nation’s problems.
“It is high time to consistently open the discourse of peace communication to the public. Most especially to student leaders who represent the voices of student participation. Not only in the university, but for this nation,” explained project leader and peace advocate Marynelle Laureta-Rosales.
From the Marawi siege to today’s heated political dialogues, the organizers wanted to put a spotlight on significant topics for better public perception and support.
“This is a great avenue to exchange discourses with the millennials who will be holding the torch of light as future leaders of the society,” added Laureta-Rosales.
As part of the program, a photography contest with the theme “KAPAYAPAAN” was also held for students. You can check the official entries here.
There are only 150 slots available, so we suggest coming as early as you can. It’s free and open to anyone willing to come. Talk about a great day, huh?
