The UP Alumni Association (UPAA) is hosting another “e-Kapihan ng Bayan sa UP” via Zoom on 27 October 2020, Tuesday, 10:00 a.m. (Manila time). The discussion will focus on a topic that is gravely affecting the youth of our country and how we are coping—“COVID-19: Its Impact on Education”.

Undersecretary Annalyn M. Sevilla, spokesperson of the Department of Education (DepEd), will be the resource speaker. She will share the DepEd’s plans and actions on how to keep the standard of Philippine education at an estimable level despite the prevailing “new normal” conditions. The usual lively discussion is expected in the open forum.

Those interested are invited to register with the UPAA Secretariat at tels. 920-6868; 920-6871; mobile 0917-8372098; or email upalumniasso@gmail.com to get the Zoom meeting ID and their personal participant’s passwords. Or contact Mr. Romeo S.A. Carlos, UPAA Executive Director, at mobile no. (0921) 285-5332.

Open to all UP alumni, faculty, and students, as well as the general public, the “e-Kapihan ng Bayan sa UP” is a public service project of the UPAA that aims to serve as a regular forum for intelligent and constructive discussion of issues relevant to the nation’s development. In a democracy like the Philippines, such public discourse is a valuable tool for guiding the national leaders and all concerned citizens to collectively confront and attempt to resolve the challenges posed by current issues of general concern.
