Leading up to the Philippines’ 2022 general elections, the Philippine Press Institute (PPI) is presenting a series of explainer videos on voter education. These are intended to provide Filipino voters with basic information about their participation in the upcoming elections and to help contribute to the strengthening of democratic values. To serve as public service announcements, the series is being developed in consultation with the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) with the support of the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) as part of the Scholastic Press Outreach Program on Voter Education of the PPI organised in cooperation with the Pimentel Institute for Leadership and Governance (PILG) and also with support from Nickel Asia Corporation (NAC).

The federalisation of the Philippine Islands was an idea said to have taken root in the country in the late 1800’s. It has been proposed under different administrations hence. The Pimentel Institute for Leadership and Governance (PILG) presents “Fed Talk at the PILG,” a podcast series that brings the federalism discourse online. It is meant to help increase the public’s awareness about federalism and explain the Bayanihan Federal Constitution provisions. The series is being developed by the PILG with the support of the Hanns Seidel Foundation (HSF) as part of the project, "Increasing Public Awareness on the Federal System of Government."
