Malapit na Bhie! Simulan na Natin!
Simulan Natin 2022 is GoodGovPH’s youth-led and non-partisan campaign that seeks to enhance the political participation of the youth, youth-led groups, and community-based organizations through voter engagement and voter awareness interventions. The campaign intends to mobilize the youth and equip them with the necessary knowledge and skills to further institutionalize their roles through formal mechanisms in the national and local elections, and ultimately, in the planning and decision-making processes at different levels of governance.
The Simulan Natin 2022 Campaign aims to achieve a high voter turnout among the youth in the 2022 elections, establish collaborative partnerships among youth groups and community-based organizations, and enhance civic education and active participation in different sectors of society. The campaign aims to accomplish this through two main strategies: 1) Voter Engagement: No single campaign can effectively achieve the objective of increasing youth participation on its own, and as such, one of its priorities is to engage in several collaborative partnerships with different stakeholders at the national and local levels. Mobilizing volunteers from different areas and groups allows the campaign to reach its intended audience, especially those with no stable access to the internet and groups in far-flung areas. 2) Voter Awareness: Focusing on civic education, the voter awareness strategy will implement the following initiatives: conventions, candidate profiling, and budget tracking.
