[Campus Bulletin] UP Ecosoc's Ground UP: Service Through Talent, A Virtual UP Reunion
Updated: Dec 3, 2021
This year, one of the leading socio-civic organizations in UP Diliman, the UP Economics Society, celebrates 63 years of Service, Excellence and Tradition. Every September, the organization commemorates its anniversary through a month-long celebration titled “Ecosoc Month” as a way to live out the core thrusts that it ingrains in all its members. Ecosoc Month consists of 5 main events: Launch and Gallery, Service Project, National Economics Summit, Grand Tradition, and a Culminating Activity.
Previous installments of the organization’s culminating activity are LIV, Ecosoc Month’s most colorful night of the year, from 2013 to 2017 and GLO, a dance party like never before, in 2019. These events are very close to the hearts of many of the organization’s members.
However, with nearly all events being held online and many challenges being posed by the global pandemic we are facing today, the organization was tasked with innovating and curating events that would uphold its core thrusts in the most efficient way possible.
After months of planning, the UP Economics Society proudly presents its new and most awaited culminating activity—Ground UP: Service Through Talent, an online benefit variety show which features a diverse pool of homegrown talent from organizations based in the various constituent universities of the University of the Philippines system. It will be held on October 2, 2021 at 7pm and will be livestreamed on the UP Ecosoc Month Facebook page.
As it’s been over a year since many of the students, faculty, and staff have stepped foot on campus, this event aims to bring together the entire UP community for a night filled with music and talent as we reminisce about our times on campus. In doing so, it also will be a fundraiser for the All U.P. Workers Union in support of the UP personnel who have been struggling during these trying times.
A ton of raffle prizes and vouchers from the organizations’ partners and sponsors await the attendees of this exciting event.
