As our current President’s six-year term draws to an end, the Philippine nation encounters yet again another presidential election. But this time, the country’s young people are stronger than ever – making sure that they are engaged in formal political processes and have a say in formulating today’s and tomorrow’s politics.
INK Enderun’s fourth issue, titled Titans in Power, aims to approach the elections as objectively as possible, and provide the opportunity for Titans to organize and play a meaningful role in political decision making, so they could consistently demonstrate their willingness and ability to foster positive, lasting change.
You will find in this issue ways that guide voters through the whole election process, from navigating politics in a digital world to handling misinformation and avoiding amplifying it. Elsewhere in this issue, we look at politics through the lens of Titans and discover what elections truly mean for them, their voting behaviors, and the economic issues that matter to them the most.
For political systems to be representative, all parts of society must be included. In view of this, the Titans in Power issue features how voting is a fundamental act of civic participation through which young people contribute to democracy. While it’s just one of many ways that youth engagement can take, it is a powerful way for the youth to make their voices heard and to have an impact on issues that affect them and their communities.
