TOKYO, JAPAN — “Jenesys is a commitment; it is a lifestyle to live by to ensure the continuity of this network.”
This was the core realization of the Philippine delegates to the ninth batch of the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths (JENESYS).
In a fitting end to a productive nine-day good will exchange program, this line was part of a four-minute speech delivered during the action plan presentation on May 22 in Tokyo, Japan attended by delegates from Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vietnam.
Bearing the batch name “Sulong” (which means “moves forward” in the Filipino language), the Philippine delegates from the Working Youth Group delivered the following action plan in a well-applauded presentation:
S: hare news in all media forms
U: nderstand culture
L: obby for legislations
O: ptimize partnerships
N: urture the environment
G: enerate sustainability measures
(A full report on the action plan will be published on http://www.pilipinasjenesysbatch9.com)
After the workshop presentation, a farewell party followed with overflowing food and drinks in an atmosphere of cultural openness and friendship. Everyone joined in the community dances which showcased differences and similarities in culture and heritage.
The Philippine delegation presented a three-minute dance which captured the Filipinos love for festivals, traditions and inherent traits of being compassionate and hospitable.
