MovePH, Rappler’s civic engagement arm, in partnership with Dakila #WeTheFuture will be hosting a huddle on “SO ano NA? Let’s hear the people’s story of the nation” on Saturday, June 20, from 2 pm to 4 pm at the Rappler HQ.

The huddle aims to create a meaningful discourse on the following issues days before President Rodrigo Duterte delivers his fourth State of the Nation Address on Monday, July 22: 

Labor rights

Environment and climate justice

Press freedom and Freedom of Information (FOI) 

Road safety and transportation

Gender equality

Education 

Anchored on these issues, the huddle will serve as an avenue to tackle topics that matter to the youth, and discuss how local communities are faring as Duterte reaches the halfway point of his term. It'll also assess the administration's performance and stances on relevant issues, and take note of the participants' vision for the nation for the next three years.

Interested students, young professionals, private sectors, NGOs and partners are welcome to join. Click the button below to register or fill up this form.

Aside from the Huddle, MovePH is also doing a series of roadshows around the Philippines to bridge the online gap by bringing the conversation on ground.– Rappler.com
