Gathering of GPN

Gathering of GPN

It is the wish and request of Dante Pasia, organizer and Convenor of the GPN that EICs of school (students') publications attend and participate in the following meetings:

A. Consultative Meetings at the Press Freedom News and Library [also the Philippine Press Institute (PPI) Office], Room 312, Banco Filipino Condominium Building, A. Soriano Avenue, Intramuros [after the Immigration office and before the Manila Cathedral], every Friday at 2pm-4pm.

This Library is the only one of its kind in the country as it is to serve the journalist to be free and be a fighter for human rights with the pen as his/her sword. Mightier! Editors-in-Chiefs should encourage the school paper staff to visit the PPI Library and Office.

B. Kapihan Para sa Kalikasan

On the occasion of the World Wetlands Day in 2007 (every February 2) this Convenor started the Monthly Kapihan Para sa Kalikasan. The concept of "Skies and Seas, Keep Them Blue" and "Integrating our Efforts of Saving Laguna and Manila Bays to include the river systems in Metro Manila" were the major objectives. The schedules for the City of Manila and Quezon city shall be the last Thursday and the last Saturday of the month respectively. Please contact this convenor for the up and coming details such as themes and venues and time of such Kapihan.

C. Meeting of GPN

Date/Time: Every Saturday, 2pm-4pm
Venue: Cafe Aroma (inside Quezon Memorial Circle, near AANI Herbs and Garden Area, QC

D. Visit and assist in the improvement of the GPN's Library and Office at the U-Belt, 962 Tolentino St. (former Cataluña St.), Sampaloc, Manila. This place will be the depository of GPN's issues. Anyone of the staff can come and do voluntary work every Saturday, 5pm-7pm, in archiving green write-ups and students print advocacies to make our country clean and green via the power of the pen - mightier than the sword. The sword is known as the ancients' weapon of war. it is vital and necessary for green pens to have a library of their own, a center for press freedom and green journalism.
