| :: ABOUT THE PROJECT
The first World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)
will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 10 to 12 December
In preparation for the Summit, the United Nations Cyberschoolbus
and European Schoolnet are jointly organizing a special event
for schools from September to December 2003. Through a series
of online activities teachers and students will examine the
impact of information and communication technologies on human
rights. These activities will focus on the universal right to
learn and exchange information, as described in articles 19
and 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is
an opportunity for schools to develop partnerships with other
schools from different regions of the world. In December, registered
schools will be able to interact (via video conference or the
Internet) with a Head of State attending the World Summit.
Register now for this exciting event!
