Positive Ideas For Positive Change

By Kaidarul @KaiDarul

Change, as the saying goes, is the only constant thing in the world other than death and taxes. Each of us partake a path towards a change for the betterment.

CHANGE STARTS WITH US. In certain circumstances when we want something to change for the better, the first to move should be us. You cannot change something unless you act on it. You cannot create a difference when you are doing nothing. In business management, for a change to occur, one must incorporate an idea into a good strategy. Thus, by implementing such strategy, the desired output will be realized. It is similar to real life management. When we want to change our daily habits, we must learn how to act on it. Eventually, when we implement actions, results will emerge.

Usually, those who easily cope with change easily are the youth. Yes, it is us! Change is our bestfriend. Whenever there is a new iPad, we grab and change our old ones. We are proactive to change. We live to change. WE ARE THE CHANGE!

So, why am I talking of these things all of the sudden? Here’s the catch.

Positive Ideas For Positive Change
Unilab Philippines is conducting the UNILAB Ideas Positive Competition for the youth.

What’s special about it?

It is a competition that aims to collect positive ideas from us, youth, for the betterment of the Philippines. The nice thing about this competition is that it does not just generate ideas for the betterment nor helps the country rebuild its glory but also takes the creativity, imagination and wit of the youth to a notch higher.

Who are eligible to join?

Anyone from the youth can join the said competition as long as he or she forms a group of five. The groups composition can be interdisciplinary, but all members must be currently enrolled and comes from the same  university or college in the Philippines.

What are at stake when you join the competition?

To help the youth turn ideas into concrete health and wellness programs for their communities, Unilab Ideas Positive provides them with:

  • a 3-day social marketing boot camp, where they learn and understand social marketing approaches from a pool of experts using current and relevant social marketing practices and case studies, and
  • a seed money so they can implement their social marketing programs within six months.
