Joseph Morong, recipient of the 2015 McLuhan Fellowship award, spoke with students at Marshall McLuhan Catholic Secondary School on February 11th.
Mr. Morong won the McLuhan Fellowship for his excellent reportage of the issues surrounding the peace process in Mindanao, especially the discussions around the proposed Bangsamoro Basic Law.  He has also covered extensively the alleged diversion of congressional funds to bogus non-governmental organizations.
Mr. Michael McLuhan, son of Marshall McLuhan, introduced Mr. Morong, who addressed the school’s Grade 11 students, many of whom are of Filipino descent. The topic was “Communicating the message of the Marginalized: Media’s coverage of the Bangsamoro Peace Process in southern Philippines”.  Mr. Morong engaged the students in a discussion on how the media has been covering the peace process in the restive southern Mindanao and how it could further improve to change the narrative of peace and non-violence in this region of the Philippines.  The students responded with insightful questions.
The Marshall McLuhan Prize is the flagship public diplomacy initiative for the Embassy of Canada in Manila.  Launched in 1997, it encourages investigative journalism in the Philippines with the belief that a strong media is essential to a strong democratic society. For more information, click here .
