On 26th June, a group of NGOs gathered in Taguig City, Metro Manila to discuss the state of cannabis in the Philippines and other issues. On the same day, NoBox Transitions launched the #FireflyInitiative social campaign under the banner of Support. Don’t Punish to ask people in what simple ways they could support the campaign, and to cultivate a culture where support for our fellow people is second nature. This was followed up with a day of activities on 27th June to celebrate a day of support, hope, and human potential.
