UVPN supports YOUTHLED National Youth Workshop on Deliberative Democracy

As a gesture of support to the YouthLed PH introduction of Deliberative Democracy in the wider Philippine audience, UVPN joins their National Youth Workshop which concluded today in Manila represented by Ms. Sittie Sheilan Sabdullah and Mr. Salahuddin Lumenda. They were also joined by BARMM youth delegates, Mr. Mahatma Sangacala, Mr. Datuyaman Datumanong, and Ms. Sittie Fariza Esmail.
Deliberative Democracy is the non-adversarial alternative to conventional democratic practice in the Philippines. Seen as a more reflective approach for the Filipino family-oriented culture, USAID and The Asia Foundation, through YouthLed Project, takes the lead in introducing them to the youth. UVPN welcomes this initiative both as long-time institutional partners and an advocate for a Shura-reflective democratic process (Islamic concept of consultative decision-making).
