This book is about the future that we—as responsible citizens—can shape together, so that many of our dreams and aspirations as a people can be realized within the lifetimes of those finishing their studies today.


Building Our Dream Philippines brings together the country’s most reputable good governance advocates—economist Jesus Estanislao, civil society leader Alexander Lacson, historial Paul Dumol, business leader Francis Estrada, educator Celerino Tiongco, and lawyer Teodoro Kalaw IV—who offer six essays that propose the values that we as Filipinos need to practice the most in order to realize our shared vision of a Dream Philippines.
