Chizmisan Forum on Social Transformation
Senator Francis Chiz Escudero recently dialogued with the students and some teachers at the CHIZmisan forum on social transformation in the UP School of Economics auditorium last Wednesday held by the UP ETC, PhilCES and the University Student Council of UP Diliman.
Student Council Chairperson Titus Tan discussed the current state of governance in the Philippines, and suggested some key point actions where the government must address in order to solve these problems; meanwhile Prof. Riza Tablarin, of the Tarlac College of Agriculture, talked about the state of Agriculture and Farming in the Philippines.
On the other hand, the bulk of the discussion focused on Josteen Vega, the National President of the Philippine Council of Economic Students (PhilCES) and his presentation of the state of Economic affairs in the Philippines and issues intertwined with it. He ended by giving an agenda of the youth on certain issues to the senator.
The Chizmisan Forum was the first of a series of forum by the UP Economics Towards Consciousness in order to raise the awareness of students on issues the country is facing. The next forum will be with Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.
