Windsor, Ontario – DaimlerChrysler and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) are inviting students between the ages of 14 and 18 to participate in a global initiative, which aims to encourage dialogue among young people from different cultures.
In the Mondialogo School Contest, participating schools are matched with a partner team from another country. Teams agree on a joint project and then work together to create a shared result, reflecting intercultural dialogue and cooperation. Creative projects could include music, plays, collages, photo documentaries, sculptures and Web pages.
A highlight of the contest includes selected students and teachers being invited to Mexico in November 2006 for the international Mondialogo Symposium. Some 25,000 students from 126 countries took part in the first 2003/2004 contest. Students have until November 15, 2005 to register; information is available at www.mondialogo.org.
