Deadline Oct. 15: register for the 2009 IDEA Exchange

The IDEA Exchange will be held in London, December 12-13, 2009. It is being organized by IDEA, Debatewise and Goldsmiths University, whose Media department will help organize an event themed as "The Web and Social Change."

Up to 150 young people from around the world will attend the event. These are tomorrow’s leaders, they are highly active in their community, often work under very difficult circumstances and are trying to bring change to places often very resistant to it.

Our goal is to help them understand how the Internet and communication tools in general can be used to amplify their voice, further their cause and achieve the change they seek.

The full list of speakers is being finalized but we hope to have representatives from leading global technology firms, people at the forefront of using social technologies such as Twitter and other leading lights on the UK Internet scene.

If you would like to attend the Exchange, please fill out an application and email it to Marcin Zaleski at by October 15, 2009.

If you would like to speak at the event please contact David Crane.
