What is the project all about?
The British Council is going all around the Philippines to give FREE seminars on how the youth may foster change through the use of digital technology. It’s all about incorporating social media with social responsibility. Gone are the days that blogging, tweeting and uploading photos were just mere pastimes or hobbies but through the seminar the young people will be given a new perspective- how to foster change through social media.
