LINGGO NG KABATAAN 2020
“Youth Engagement for Global Action”
In this era where new technologies have been emerging and embraced by the international communities, the world has been getting smaller and smaller every day. With these new technologies come new challenges.
This digital generation apparently brings both convenience and discomfort, both welfare and harm. For the positive aspect, it opens doors for knowledge and deeper understanding on how the rest of the world thinks, behaves and acts. It offers endless opportunities for job seekers and ease in all forms of transactions via online platforms. On the negative aspect, it has been used as an opportunity to intrude the rights of privacy amongst individuals. Unscrupulous activities such as cybersex and cyber bullying have been victimizing netizens especially the youth.
Being your father in this province, it is my challenge to you, my young constituents, to capitalize on your curious minds in discovering new things and venturing new horizons for your own good and for the good of your respective organizations and communities. Be competent by equipping yourselves with knowledge and using your imagination for further personal and collegial enrichment. Be proactive and productive team players. Always get involved and engaged in worthwhile endeavors being part of the larger and wider global stage.
I am one with you in your LINGGO NG KABATAAN 2020 celebration with the theme: “Youth Engagement for Global Action.”
