Things you'll only learn outside the Classroom

After the success of the 1st series of Dialogues at Starbucks last June, the CSR department of Starbucks Coffee is back to tickle our minds and to allow us to stop and ponder on various social issues and learn from the experts themselves. The Dialogues at Starbucks is a Corporate Social Responsibility initiative that encourages participants to engage in lively conversations on CSR issues that is highly relevant to our community.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to listen to Illac Diaz who is a social entrepreneur. Aside from the fact that he's very cute (hehehe) I was simply at awe on how committed he is in helping to fight poverty.

As he showed us various videos of his works and most especially that from the Millenium Schools Design Contest which is an international design competition that aims to build more disaster-resistant school buildings located in developing countries.

All I can say was WOW.

It's not too late to catch the other two Dialogues at Starbucks sessions!

Watch out for:

--> my dear fellow blogger Lori Baltazar as she will share her thoughts on food photography and blogging on October 18 at Starbucks Fairways Tower

--> the coolest ever WeeWillDoodle gang will be back to showcase their latest doodle masterpieces on October 25 at Starbucks Silver City

See ya there!! ;)
