Through our projects and programs we seek to create ways to foster participation and vigilance among Filipino citizens in the socio-political and economic affairs of the state.


SLB conducts a bi-annual National Situationer dubbed as KWENTONG BAYAN. We regularly invite people who are adept with and can objectively give a reading of the economic, social, and political situation the country.
