In the first week of November 2019, DILG plans to launch an advocacy campaign on rebuilding the Filipino culture of discipline, hoping to rekindle the culture of discipline among Filipinos.
Lack of discipline
DILG USec. Jonathan Malaya said on DZMM that most of the problems the agency had to deal with involved lack of discipline.
“Nakikita namin sa lahat ng programa ng DILG, laging lumalabas ‘yung lack of discipline, at ‘yung kawalan ng disiplina sa ating bansa ang isa sa mga bagay na para bang hinihila tayo pababa,” he said.
(We have observed in all of the DILG programs, there’s always a lack of discipline, and lack of discipline in our country is one of the things that seems to drag us down.)
Rebuild the Filipino culture of discipline
Malaya then said launching the advocacy campaign will be in the first week of November.
“Very soon, hopefully by the first week of November, maglulunsad ang DILG ng national advocacy campaign, discipline,” he said.
(Very soon, hopefully by the first week of November, DILG will launch a national advocacy campaign, discipline.)
“Let’s rebuild that culture of discipline,” he added.
Individual concern for the environment
“Hindi lang puwedeng gobyerno lang lagi ang magbabantay. Kailangan magbantayan din tayo, ‘yung tao mismo mayroong concern sa kaniyang kapaligiran, sa kaniyang kapitbahay, at magagawa lang natin ‘yan kung maibabalik natin ‘yung kultura ng disiplina na tingin ko naman, mayroon tayo noong araw, ngunit parang napabayaan natin,” Malaya said.
(It is not just the government that should always be on guard. All of us must be vigilant, the citizen himself must have a concern for his environment, his neighbor, and we can only do that if we can bring back that culture of discipline that I believe we had before but we seem to have neglected.)
Start of the campaign
According to Malaya, the campaign will start with a signing of a pledge of commitment between different government agencies, socio-civic organizations, and local government units.
