You are invited

IF YOU are living in Naga and its suburbs, and have an abiding interest on the following topics, you are invited to join us in the public presentation of research findings and recommendations made by visiting University of British Columbia (UBC) students.

The presentations will be held on two consecutive afternoons, starting tomorrow at the Bicol Science and Technology Centrum (BSTC) audiovisual room. Proceedings will start promptly at 1 pm.

The topics:

June 6

  • Youth Planning Development
  • Investment Promotion
  • Urban Agriculture
June 7
  • Transportation Planning and Land Use
  • Social Housing
  • Education
Among those expected to attend are the outgoing and incoming members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod, the various department heads of the city government, civil society representatives and members of the local academia. Key informants for the research, which ran for the last three weeks, are also expected to participate.

The simultaneous research work responds to the development challenges identified by Mayor Robredo when the group paid him a courtesy call last May 16. Details on how this activity materialized is explained here.
