MANILA, Philippines – How can we use social media to promote social good in the community? How can Filipinos prevent the spread of disinformation online? 

These are some of the questions that the forum “Social Good in the Digital Age” intends to answer.

MovePH, Rappler’s civic engagement arm, will be at the Palawan State University-Main Campus Performing Arts Theater at 9 am on Thursday, July 25, to promote the responsible use of digital technology for social good.

This is the first time that MovePH will have its roadshow in the Mimaropa region. 

#MovePalawan, in partnership with the Palawan State University Student Council and Pioneer Publication, is the sixth stop of MovePH’s series of roadshows around the Philippines. So far this year, MovePH had held roadshows in Cavite, Quezon City, Cagayan, Baguio, and Iloilo

The forum aims to explain the nature of disinformation online and to highlight the role of a free and independent press in preserving democracy. (READ: Baguio journalists urge youth to help fight disinformation

Participants will learn the ropes of responsible social media use for advocacies, including connecting with possible collaborators; identifying, handling, and preventing disinformation; promoting positive online behavior; and ultimately, inspiring courage in themselves and in others.

Tickets to the public forum are free, but seats are limited. Register below:
