Congratulations, CC-FT Batch 1!

We congratulate the 29 co-learners and 2 learning associates of the Certificate Course on Futures Thinking (CC-FT) for graduating with overwhelming victory! The virtual graduation ceremony for the CC-FT was held last October 30, 2020, 2:00 PM via Zoom.

Welcoming the attendees, Dr. Lizan Perante-Calina, SVP and Dean of the DAP-GSPDM, began by recounting how the Certificate Course came to be. She connected its fruition with the creation of GSPDM’s Knowledge Innovation HubLab which has Futures Studies as one of its six platforms. Dr. Perante-Calina saw this course as purposive, it being a step towards democratizing Futures Thinking in the country by incorporating it in the public administration and governance landscape.
