LSPCon 2009[edit]

Much of the success of LSPCon in the past has been its emphasis on pro-activity and making long-term contributions to the community at large, rather than being passively aware of social concerns. LSPCon not only provides a venue for both students and educators to address areas of concern through active participation. Even more importantly, it creates a unique opportunity for participants to gain new knowledge and insights regarding their duties and responsibilities in the community at large. These take place mainly through LSPCon's yearly theme.

This year’s overarching theme is Environmental Journalism: A Heart of Change. This year's LSPCon was held at De La Salle-Araneta University.

LSPCon serves as a venue for a meaningful discourse among Lasallian journalists who seek to capably exercise their citizenship and thereby contribute to the dynamic development of the society in the 21st century. It provides students from varying cultural backgrounds with the opportunity to engage in meaningful dialogue-reasoned conversations.

LSPCon is a conference characterized by structured sessions, which allow the delegates to engage in intense discussions through working groups and parliamentary sessions. Discussions are prefaced by presentations of resource speakers. Views are exchanged regarding the conference topics and resolutions are created and voted upon, during sessions.
