(116 MB) In Sierra Leone, a country devastated by years of brutal civil war, young people are using new technology to create music, make movies, and run radio programs. In India, youth are exploring how technology can be used to address poverty. Now these youth – at the forefront of the technology revolution – but forgotten in global decision-making, are joining forces to make their voices heard.
Traversing seven countries on four continents “Local Voices, Global Visions” meets these youth in their local communities, and follows them as they attend the UN’s World Summit on the Information Society, a groundbreaking gathering of world leaders held in Geneva in December 2003.
This is more than a powerful educational resource. It’s a call to action for young people to tackle some of our planet’s most pressing problems.
“Empowering Youth as leaders, contributors, entrepreneurs and decision makers”
– this is their ‘Global Vision’.
