MANILA, Philippines – How can Filipinos use social media to hold the line and promote social good?
MovePH, Rappler’s civic engagement arm, will go to the University of the Philippines (UP) College of Law on March 12, 1 pm, at the Malcolm Theater to promote the responsible use of digital technology for social good.
#MoveDiliman will be the fourth stop in MovePH’s series of forums and workshops around the Philippines to help communities take action and promote social good in the digital age. This is in partnership with the Harvard Law School Alumni Association of the Philippines.
Participants get to learn the relevance of responsible social media use for advocacies, and understand how they can take an active role in identifying, handling, and preventing disinformation.
Those joining #MoveDiliman will also be able to learn about the global landscape of technology, and hear interesting insights involving existing legal frameworks to deal with disinformation on social media.
