Wishing for the gift of bilocation. Am in Bislig City at the 11th General Assembly of LOAMC. But this afternoon in QC at NCPAG, the Galing Pook Foundation is also having its annual general assembly.
Both organizations are driven by the belief that participatory good local governance is one of the most effective strategies to bring about the changes we want in our country, not in one grand instant, but in many different places, at different times. Through initiatives like Galing Pook and LOAMC, they can inspire one another, learn from one another, and come together to create an impact that is greater than a mere aggregation of their individual efforts. In a mantra from our activist past, “quantitative changes can transform to qualitative changes.”
