Nine (9) students from Bukidnon State University participated in the recently concluded P2A (Passage 2 ASEAN) Virtual Mobility Program Season 3 from September 6 to October 11, 2023.
BukSU participants Dexie Virtudazo, Febrea Nalang, Flordeluna Loayan, James Daniel Genuino, Julmarie Eliza Dela Torre, Maui Galamiton Jabay, Robert Jhon Lico-an, and Sidney Jay Aldo, participated in weekly meetings with students from different universities within and outside the Philippines. These meetings facilitated discussions on SDG-related challenges and encouraged the participants to propose innovative solutions.
Febrea, one of the participants, said that attending the United Nations seminar on P2A (Passage to ASEAN) in relation to Sustainable Development Goals was an incredible experience.
“It allowed me to forge meaningful connections, exchange valuable insights, and deepen my understanding of our projects. I’m truly grateful to BukSU for this opportunity, which made me appreciate the privilege of being part of the ASEAN community even more,” said Febrea.
The students underwent rigorous mentoring sessions, where Mr. Raul D. Lecaros, a faculty member of the College of Technologies – IT Department and COT – International Affairs Coordinator, provided insightful feedback to several groups, enhancing their final presentations. The participants’ videos were uploaded online, and after online voting, the final judging took place on October 11, 2023.
Raul Lecaros, reflecting on his experience as a mentor, shared his enthusiasm.
“I have witnessed students from diverse cultures collaborating seamlessly, proving that no barrier can hinder their collective thinking for solutions. The P2A virtual mobility provided me with the opportunity to mentor students from ASEAN nations, and it thrilled me to see their final output materialize,” he said.
BukSU takes pride in the achievements of its students, with three members from these groups securing their places in the Top 3 best presentations. Their success highlights the university’s dedication to fostering international collaboration and empowering students to make a difference in addressing global challenges and contributing to the attainment of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The Duy Tan University (Vietnam), Temasek University (Singapore) and Universitas Pembangunan Nasional Veteran Yogyakarta (Indonesia) co-hosted the said event which aimed to bring together students from various schools and universities across ASEAN nations who share a strong interest in the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The event provided a platform for other students from other HEIs to engage with SDG-related issues in a fun, social, and interactive manner. (Raul D. Lecaros / COT – Information Technology Department)
