2022 will be a critical year for the Philippines as we hold our national elections. The youth, comprising 52% of the total voting population, will be playing an important role in electing the right leaders and consequently, shaping a future that’s green, just, livable, and lovable.
Be part of the #Love52 movement. Signing the love letter will strengthen our call to our future leaders for a better normal and a brighter future.
THE YOUTH’S LOVE LETTER
Together with various youth groups nationwide, we call on our future leaders to prioritize and address the issues that will determine the fate of future generations. We are entering a crucial period: the next six years—thereby the next administration—will dictate the state of the planet in the coming decades, depending on how we quickly address the climate crisis we’re experiencing now.
The future needs love. We hope you can show your love, too!
WHY DO WE NEED THIS LOVE LETTER?
Current and dominant election narratives in the news and in social media focus on personalities and partisanship. We believe that this focus must be shifted and more space must be made for tackling issues, particularly the issues that will define the future of the planet and the fate of the youth.
The LOVE, 52 movement envisions an empowered and forceful youth voice that is demanding good governance and a better normal. “Why do we vote?” We vote to protect our loved ones, our country, and our planet. Together with various youth nationwide, we’ll seed changes in the Filipinos’ thinking about election issues, and show them that they have the power to change the narrative and move candidates to adopt the youth agenda.
