Summit 2013: Rise

RISE (v.) - 1. to move from a lower to a higher position; move upward; ascend 2. to come into action 3. to advance to a higher level of action, thought, feeling.

Last year’s Summit focused on the Pilipino Renaissance - a movement we hope to be a part of in our lifetime, or perhaps one that’s already begun. You left Summit 2012 feeling inspired - but now what? 

Promising to continue the momentum of Summit 2012, Summit 2013 is about education and empowerment. We’ll give you the practical tools and resources to help you rise. As leaders, we must rise and take action about the issues we care about, so we can rise together as a community.
