“MULAT” (which means ‘awakening’ in English) is an initiative of The Bedan to encourage students and not just student-journalists to propel maximum student inclusion and at the same time, promote duties and responsibilities of student activism.
The Bedan envisions a society that would encourage a well-founded political discourse with arguments based on facts and not just mere hear-says or what we should most appropriately refer to as ‘posts’ considering our generation today. With that vision, “MULAT” was crafted and will continue its legacy.
In light of this, students from high school to college-level are encouraged to join the event. There is no limit as to the number of delegates.
