As part of MoveBohol’s program and in association with Holy Name University’s Central Student Government, an advocacy campaign will be conducted at Holy Name University on February 16, 2017 to raise consciousness about the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Expected to attend are about a hundred college and high school student leaders and journalists.
The first part of the program will focus on the preliminaries: welcome remarks, statement of purpose and acknowledgment of participants. And the second part will be the “real talk” with Mr. Mark Phillips and Mr. Benjamin Skelton as speaker 1 and speaker 2 respectively.
The talk aims to highlight on the latest updates and innovations in information technology, and how such industry can contribute to development. Also, out of the 17 UN Development Goals, Goal #9 will be given emphasis, to which it states: “Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation”, which is one of the BiCTC goals.
The Bohol ICT Council (BiCTC) and the Bohol Bloggers Collective (BBC) headed by its president, Mrs. Joanne Phillips, worked hand in hand with MoveBohol to make the event a success. Thus, two equally honourable gentlemen (as earlier mentioned) were requested and both accepted to give the inspiring and educational talks on two (2) promising topics:
Speaker 1: Can Technology Impact on the 17 Sustainable Development Goals?
Speaker 2: Opportunities in Digital Creative Work, VR and Games
An open forum will follow shortly after the talk. Invited guests will be given opportunities to ask questions, clarify certain matters and voice out their opinions on the issues at hand. The event
