It's a small world: Cultural Skateboard Exchange





Check out the cultural exchange project between skateboarders in
Afghanistan and Peru. I think videos and other modern communication strategies are strong tools for cultural exchange. They give youth a voice and provide them with tools they need in order to express their ideas and hopes for being the new leaders of the future.

Education of the Future! I love how the internet connects people



Connecting Afghan youth with the rest of the world: the sharing perspectives exchange project with the name small world between Skateistan students and youth in countries around the world is picking up momentum. Recent activities include video exchanges with girl skaters in Peru and blog exchanges with schools in Australia and the US. The Sharing Perspectives project began this past spring, and will hopefully continue indefinitely. Using multimedia and the internet as tools students and young people worldwide get a chance to learn about each other and their countries.
