The WhyNot? Forum is a smorgasbord of great, brave ideas–an open-source innovation soup that will hopefully inspire other Filipinos to connect adjunct thoughts, take impactful action, and weave together new breakthrough ideas–redefining and challenging the inertia of the status quo; all in the spirit of positive change for the Philippines. This is NOT your usual forum. It is NOT boring, stiff, nor bland. The spirit of the WhyNot? Forum is impassioned, quirky, revolutionary, irreverent, and innovative.
