    At school or college? Have an idea to change the world?

    ITU Telecom World 2011 brings together thousands of influential delegates from the telecommunications and technology industries to discuss what steps need to be taken to get more of the world connected. They’re meeting in Geneva, Switzerland on October 25-27, and they need your help!

    We are inviting 10,000 global school children (8-18) to design the innovations that could make a real difference to their world.

 Sign up your school or class now, and your students can start influencing thousands of decision-makers in information and technology communications.

    Once you’ve registered to get involved, you can share your ideas and prototypes with each other. Your ideas will also form a significant part of World 2011′s Manifesto for Change, a blueprint for using technology to make a real difference.

    Brought to you by the ITU Development Sector. Read more about this call to action in our introductory blog post.”
