by Gaby B. Keith / PIO

Participants of the Youth Summit conducted by the city government on Dec. 12 and 13, 2017 at the Baguio Convention Center raised several issues and their proposed solutions.

City Council Secretary Brenner Bengwayan and local legislative staff officer V Jonalyn Pagada forwarded copies of the summit’s output to councilors Michael Lawana and Lilia Fariñas, chairs of the committees on youth and sports development and social services, women and urban poor, respectively.

Also furnished copies were Mayor Mauricio Domogan, the other councilors, and the city’s punong barangays.

Among the issues and concerns raised were the destruction of properties, such as overpasses and parks; lack of control of minors regarding curfew; amending the penalties under the Graffiti Ordinance; graffiti causes disturbance to the people; lack of training and information dissemination of some Task Force Youth Development (TFYD) members; vices; lack of trash cans, littering, waste segregation; retail stores are uninformed about graffiti; vandalism; blank walls; culprits are hard to catch, lack of security personnel; fraternities; programs should be provided in partnership with different institutions and agencies;

Lack of implementation and time and inactive TFYD members; lack of involvement and trainings of TFYD; improper allocation of budgets; delayed activities and projects; lack of human resource; TFYD awareness; millennials’ attitude and character; unexpected beneficial plans; lesser members of TFYD;  and budget.

Solutions proposed are surveillance of public and private properties; for parents to educate their children regarding curfew and graffiti; strict implementation of laws; seminars from graffiti artists; for the barangay council to educate TFYD about its duties and responsibilities; open an online report page; add trash bins; for signage in retail stores to show information of illegal graffiti campaign; convert to art contest, provide freedom wall for graffiti and install CCTVs; paint a mural on every blank wall; conduct seminars for civilians to help catch culprits; diverting attention to others, relationships and things as solution to fraternities; for citizens to be able to participate in various programs offered; house-to-house invitation and open forum to discuss updates; post public notices on updates, seminars, workshops; proper planning and budgeting; follow-up with concerned offices regarding delayed activities and projects; barangay officials to encourage and convince the youth; information dissemination; personality development counseling; trial approval of officials regarding unexpected beneficial plans; hoarding of members; fund and budget to be used by the youth organization or team building.
