MovePH goes to U.P. Tacloban for Social Good in the Digital Age forum
MANILA, Philippines – How can Filipinos use social media for social good? What can be done to prevent the spread of disinformation online?
These are some of the questions that the “Social Good in the Digital Age” forums intends to answer as MovePH, the civic engagement arm of Rappler, heads to the University of the Philippines Tacloban College (UPVTC) in Tacloban City at 9 am on Wednesday, November 27.
#MoveTacloban, in partnership with UP Vista and the UP Tacloban Student Council, is the 8th stop of MovePH’s series of roadshows around the Philippines. So far this year, MovePH had held roadshows in Cavite, Quezon City, Cagayan, Baguio, Iloilo, Palawan, and Bacolod.
The forum seeks to put the spotlight on the role of the community and the opportunity for everyone to use social media as a platform for social good and nation building.
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.
