12th EDSOR Peace Conference

KAKABA KA BA? O KAKASA KA BA?” Two questions which pretty much sum up the very essence of this year’s EDSOR Peace Conference: the youth, their problems, insecurities, and fears as the leaders of today.  For this year’s EDSOR delegates who chose to take the challenge of these questions, they responded with a resounding “Aba syempre!” and “May kaba, pero kaya!”

This year, the 12th EDSOR Peace Conference was hosted by ICA and was held last January 13 to 14, 2012. EDSOR is a yearly gathering of student leaders from both grade school and high school departments of the EDSA-Ortigas Consortium of Schools, namely ICA, Xavier, La Salle Greenhills, and St. Pedro Poveda College.  Since 2000, the EDSOR School Consortium has been holding peace conferences inspired by the sentiments of unity and peace from the EDSA Revolution in 1986.  It aims to gather student leaders from the 4 schools to hone their leadership skills and to continuously work towards promoting peace in their respective schools

Truly, this year’s EDSOR Peace Conference was one of a kind and full of surprises for the delegates. It featured a bonfire where the delegates gathered around and burned their fears written in strips of paper in the flame to affirm their commitment to stand strong despite their fears as leaders.  Other activities include the talks of Mr. Efren Peñaflorida and Dr. Grace Dalisay, Amazing Race, concurrent sessions, preparation of group advocacy action plan and the designing of statement drawstring bags.

Everyone went home as changed individuals and youth leaders able to face their fears so that even through difficulties they may be able to truly say, “May kaba pero kaya.”
