Last call for the 2009 IDEA Exchange

Hurry! Registration for the 2009 IDEA Exchange ends this Thursday, October 15th! This year's Exchange will take place in London on December 12th-13th. The event will commence with a grand opening on December 10th at the House of Lords in the Palace of Westminster, and with an IDEA General Assembly on December 11th.

Organized by IDEA and Debatewise, the event will discuss the theme created by the media department at Goldsmiths University, "The Web and Social Change." The Exchange will provide an opportunity to explore a variety of topics related to the use of Internet and digital technologies to engage young people as well as different segments of the population in the process of communication, debate and dialogue as well as participation in change.

The event will accept up to 150 young people from around the world who have qualities of tomorrow’s leaders, 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. Participants in the Exchange can be teachers and educators, activists, university students, or program administrators.

If you would like to attend the Exchange, please fill out an application and email it to Marcin Zaleski at mzaleski@idebate.org by October 15, 2009. If you would like to speak at the event please contact David Crane at http://www.debatewise.com/pages/contact-us.
