The adhoc Committee on Advocacy (ComAd) of the Bicol Regional Development Council conducted a symposium on Ambisyon Natin 2040 and the Regional Development Plan 2017-2022 for higher education student journalists. It was held last November 14 at the NEDA regional office in Legazpi City. The activity gathered 142 student journalists and officers of the Bicol Association of Tertiary Schools Publication Advisers (BATSPA) from 33 colleges and universities regionwide.
The symposium raised awareness and generated interest on Ambisyon Natin 2040 and the Bicol RDP among higher education student journalists. The participating schools are expected to feature the Ambisyon Natin 2040 and the Bicol RDP in their publications and/or internet-based communication channels, such as website and social media. The Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Region 5, as member of the ComAd, shall ensure that NEDA Region 5 is provided with copies of feature articles and/or student publications that feature the Ambisyon Natin 2040 and the Bicol RDP.
