In 2008 the world celebrates five major global initiatives
These are some of the big issues that the world is focusing on in 2008. The Global Education website invites you (students, and teachers too) to develop a visual response to one of these issues.
Create a visual story in 5 images. The sequence will present your ideas about the chosen issue. You can use the software or format that you like best - we look forward to seeing your drawings, photos, cartoons or models.
So get the camera out, start drawing or modelling.
There's got to be a blog post in this - year of sanitation just has a wealth of opportunity embedded in it.

About UBUweb: UbuWeb has no need for money, funding or backers. Our web space is provided by an alliance of interests sympathetic to our vision. Donors with an excess of bandwidth contribute to our cause. All labour and editorial work is voluntary; no money changes hands. Totally independent from institutional support, UbuWeb is free from academic bureaucracy and its attendant infighting, which often results in compromised solutions; we have no one to please but ourselves.
UbuWeb posts much of its content without permission; we rip out-of-print LPs into sound files; we scan as many old books as we can get our hands on; we post essays as fast as we can OCR them. UbuWeb is an unlimited resource with unlimited space to fill. It is in this way that the site has grown to encompass hundreds of artists, hundreds of gigabytes of sound files, books, texts and videos.
