THIS YEAR’S THEME
“IMPACT: Laudato Si & Social Media”

It will be all about maximizing the use of social media to promote and protect the environment, our common home. Inspired by Laudato Si, an encyclical by Pope Francis, we are invited to reflect deeply on all points of human activity, whether we consider care for creation at the level of our individual choices or in the public square. The need for urgent action is clear and he appeals to us to become “painfully aware” of what is happening to the world and “to grow in solidarity, responsibility and compassionate care.” 210

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The Social Media Summit is attended mostly by young professionals and religious from dioceses and congregations throughout the country, this year’s summit will be held at Hotel H 2 O Manila on November 19, 2016, with the end in view of keeping Church workers updated with the latest trends in social media as a most potent platform for advancing religious and social advocacies.
