MUNI HOHOL in Cebu


Cebu HOHOL

Last September 6, Muni had its first hangout session in the vibrant city of Cebu! Here’s what went down during this landmark event for both Muni and Cebu! 🙂

The HOHOL (short for “hangout hangout lang”) objective was simple: to bring together like-minded folks for an evening of casual yet stirring conversations on things more important than the latest celebrity gossip; to build the Muni community of critical thinkers, daydreamers and purposeful doers. 🙂

Check out what went on Behind-The-Scenes on this video by Hanz Florentino of Studio Inspiro! 😀

Thank you to Handuraw Pizza Gorordo for hosting us, and to Youth for a Livable Cebu for helping us put it together!

Attendees were pre-assigned to their respective discussion groups for the night, got to know their fellow group mates, dined on yummy offerings from Handuraw Pizza, and loosened up with an icebreaker. 🙂

After that, discussions went around about 5 different topics and each group was asked to share things we could easily apply to our lives with regard to their group’s topic, and here’s what each team shared:

  1. Indigenous Materials: Research more on local materials and various applications; Be creative; Learn more about what is around you; Replenish materials used in order to be sustainable (Team Timoi)
  2. Sports / Adventure Tourism: Get to know locals when traveling; Leave no trace; Attempt to educate both travelers and locals on more eco approaches to tourism / travel (Team Buzzy)
  3. Organic Food / Farming: Look beyond the label; Eat healthy; not just for the sake of going veg/vegan or organic; Apply small changes to make your way to a healthier diet easier to maintain (Team Organiko)
  4. Social Media for Social Good: Do more than just inform, start a discussion; Drive action; Create a platform; Have offline meet-ups (Team Sosyal Media)
  5. Upcycling / Turning Trash Into Treasure: Avoid wasting even the little things like plastic straws and stirrers; Create a support group for ideas – and we’re glad the team did take the initiative to create an FB group! 🙂 (Team Transpormers)

Thank you to all those who came, conversed and will hopefully continue the conversations and create collaborations! We love Cebu! You guys have been amazing! 😀
