June 2016 when we launched this campaign to decide our future as a nation. Dearest Philippines is a campaign inspired by Service Design Thinking and the global movement which started in Scotland as Dearest Scotland. We are inviting individuals with Philippine connection to write their letters to the future of the nation. As Martin Luther said: "if you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write".
