How can we cut through the social media noise and build communities of action that will help make the world a better place?

MANILA, Philippines – Making the world a better place is a team effort. How can you take part in ensuring a safer environment and a stronger society?

On Saturday, September 21, Rappler, together with the De La Salle Philippines and De La Salle University, held the 2019 Manila Social Good Summit

With the theme ‘Insight for Impact,’ the event challenged Filipinos to cut through the social media noise to build communities of action that will help make the world a better place.

This year’s event included the Huddle – a conversation that brought students, partners and interested individuals into a meaningful discourse on certain issues – that triggered the thematic messages for the discussions in the main plenary.

Here are the key themes that were discussed in the Huddle:

  • Environment
  • Media and democracy
  • Transportation
  • Gender equality

Trending topics

#InsightForImpact and #2030Now consistently became the trending topics on Twitter Philippines as netizens called for more livable cities. 

Filipinos online also chimed in as Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno and Quezon City Mayor Joy Belmonte discussed the possible solutions to traffic in their cities.


 

Aside from discussions about solving traffic woes, netizens shared their thoughts on addressing the plastics problem. 

World-renowned commentator on the digital revolution Andrew Keen served as the keynote speaker during the event where he discussed the contemporary crisis of democracy all over the world, and the role of technology and innovation in attempting to “fix the future.”
