ReimagiNATION & Tuloy-Tulay: the Search for the New Filipino

The past 2 weeks have been all about reflection on who we are -- both as individuals as well as a people.

The upcoming WhyNot? gathering on Aug 22 tackles the very timely subject: Why Not A ReimagiNATION?

Imagine the New Filipino : Homebound, not Outbound. Competitive, not Complacent. Global Perspective, not Regional Mindset. Renegades, not Robots

Speakers confirmed so far :
Paco Sandejas, Brain Gain Network
Major Dennis Eclarin, Philippine Army
Howie Severino, Journalist
and Rapa Lopa, Executive Director of Benigno Aquino Foundation on his Tita Cory's reimagination of the New Filipino through her work and advocacies

August 22, 3pm to 6pm @ the Ayala Museum. Tickets at P200 each.
Please email for reservations.

Are you aged between 18-24 years of age and a young Filipino leader wanting to be part of an effective and lasting solution? Rise above the apathy and feeling of helplessness!
The Asian Institute of Management is responding to the "need to develop a new breed of young Philippine leaders, who will have the will, skills, and support to take up the great challenges that the Philippines confronts." The Tuloy-Tulay (Building Bridges) Leadership Camp for the Youth is an intense and challenging week of personal discovery, skills enhancement, and commitment building. One of the Camp’s core messages is that given the complex problems that are faced in the country, no singular leader can address these alone. There is a great need to learn how to work together.


The Camp’s ultimate objective is to deliver beneficial and positive impact to the lives of the people that are or will be affected by the future leadership of the chosen participants. The Camp intends to achieve this, in particular, by:

1. Providing intensive leadership development that will allow the participants to be exposed to current Philippine complex problems as well as begin the journey toward self-mastery so that they can be personally committed and competently equipped to address these problems; and

2. Facilitating the building of a vibrant network among the participants, who will have an intense shared experience through the Camp, so that knowledge and resources can be shared in an effort to continually improve and sustain each other’s leadership and efforts.
