    :: ABOUT THE PROJECT


    The first World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) will take place in Geneva, Switzerland, from 10 to 12 December 2003.

    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.
