Panorama and Global Gallery Contest Do you feel part of an emerging global youth culture? If so, how is it affecting you and others in your community, country and region? What factors influence your sense of identity and belonging? How has technology and new media shaped your understanding of global culture? In what ways do you promote dialogue and understanding among youth in your region and around the world? If you are a young person between the ages of 16-32, we invite you to share your thoughts on what Global Youth Culture means to you! Format Images (photography, painting, digital graphics) through our Global Gallery Key Dates The contest opens on 10th March and will close on 10th April, 2010 Sub-Themes - Global Culture and Values: Do you think that there is an emerging common set of global values and if so, how would you define them? Are we heading in a direction towards increased individualism or a shared common humanity? - Local Culture vs Global Culture: Do you feel that local cultures are being threatened by a dominant global culture or is a new global culture rooted and created on the basis of diverse and converging local influences? Is your world view influenced more by your regional outlook, local community or global network? - Global Youth Culture and Social Media: How has the wide-spread access to digital social media influenced and shaped the world views of youth? Has interconnectivity led to greater intercultural communications and dialogue or are the gaps of understanding widening?
