“Last year’s Summit focused on the Pilipino Renaissance - a movement we hope to be a part of in our lifetime, or perhaps one that’s already begun,” explained Iris Zalun, Vice President of UniPro and co-chair of Summit. “So, with this year’s theme, we wanted to build on the momentum of Summit 2012. Last year we inspired a group of young people through the incredible words of guests like Jose Antonio Vargas and Tony Meloto, and this year, we’ll give them the practical tools and resources to help them rise to action.”
