Helping the elderly spot misinformation through the ASEAN Digital Literacy Program supported by

In an increasingly digital world, information transfers faster than ever. And while this is a good thing, the challenge now comes in sifting through a myriad of information and identifying what is credible.

For 73-year-old  Nerio Salaveria,  learning how to spot misinformation is a powerful skill that helps him and his community make informed decisions.

“I used to have such a hard time understanding what is mis/disinformation. With so much information available on social media, it's hard to decipher what's true and what's not, especially for people my age who are used to just taking information as is. Even the elderly in my community get confused by consuming news on the internet–they believe everything just because it's on social media,” Mr. Salaveria said.

Filipinos' compassion towards the elderly takes the spotlight on ‘Plan 75’

The Cannes-winning film is now showing in Philippine cinemas

Cannes-winning film Plan 75 might be set in Japan but it is the Filipinos’ sense of compassion towards the elderly that takes the spotlight in the dystopian film.

In the movie, Filipino-Japanese actress Stefanie Arianne plays Maria, a Filipino caregiver in Japan who is culture-shocked by the policy of encouraging senior citizens to die.

Arianne believes that the film provided a realistic representation of Filipino caregivers and OFWs known for their family-centric values. She herself felt connected with the character she portrayed.  

"I think the most similar thing Maria and I have in common is perseverance. We’ve both learned that there are times you need to get out of your comfort zone but at the same, you must not forget your boundaries and have a good heart," the Japan-based actress said.
