These are helpful websites that would definitely help everyone in understanding PopDev:

Philippine Center for Population and Development

“The PCPD believes that development can only be sustainable if a proper balanceis maintained between the country’s population and resources.”

Mulat Pinoy: PopDev Para sa Kabataan

“Popdev is concerned with many things: not just population growth or density, but also with the environment, food supply, housing, even gender and religion. Everything you do affects everyone else. How can you positively affect other Filipinos? What’s your story?”

Philippine Legislators’ Committee on Population and Development Foundation, Inc.

“Committed to working with and among legislative bodies from the national down to the local level, PLCPD primarily works within the halls of Congress, devoted to developing policy champions and generating viable, responsive, and people-centered public policies on population and human development.”

Sex and Sensibilities

“Sex and Sensibilities, as its name implies, is a balance of sex and responsible choice. It is a site that hopes to be your trusted haven to get practical information about sex; a private place where your questions about sexuality will be answered with compassion, intelligence, and most importantly, always with honesty and respect for your choice.”

Day 1: Shedding light like lamps.

After the 4-day workshop conducted by Probe Media Foundation, Inc., we went back to our respective normal, boring lives. It was especially miserable for us to leave the nice hotel, the delectable food and the warm friends and acquaintances we have made over the last few days.

We had no choice but to go back to our busy, jam-packed and not-so-ordinary lives.

Going back to Adamson with everything we’ve learned at the Social Networth workshop, we had one thing in mind – We have the responsibility of dissimenating the information we have gathered from the workshop.

On our first day back at school after the workshop, we talked with the chairperson of the Communication department at school about our plans. This is what our project proposal initially contained:

  • Seminar on PopDev and Social Media
  • Debate/Forum on RH Bill
  • Production of PSA
  • Facebook Page (Sanctuaryo ni Juan)
  • Blog

While discussing with the Ms. Jen, our chair for the Communication department, she told us that since we are thriving in a Catholic institution, we cannot explicitly say that we are pro-RH. She gave us better ideas and better options to be able to communicate to our Comm-unity the point of our discussion here. And now, this is our plan for the coming weeks to come:

  • Seminar – “Mythbusters on Population Control”
  • Radio Show – “The More, The Merrier?”
  • Community Seminar in Cabuyao, Laguna on April 2012
  • Distrbution of flyers about PopDev

We are very much pleased with the plan. We are also very excited to implement the activities for the whole Adamson community, since we know that what we will impart to them would benefit not just us, but the whole population of the Philippines. We would like to be lamps for the youth of our Comm-unity, shedding light upon their unaware minds.
