Young people from 85 countries submitted more than 1,500 photos to “Shoot Nations 2007,” a global competition to encourage youth to express themselves through photography and drawing. The winning photos included one taken by a team of students gathered by EDC in the Philippines, a group dubbed “power users” for their intensive long-term use of information and communication technologies.
EDC leads an international team of researchers to learn more about these young people and their impact on families, communities, and society. Findings from the research will inform policy and practice in education and workforce development.
The winning photos are part of an installation that premiered at the United Nations International Youth Day in August 2007. The collection has also been exhibited in London, Berlin, and New Delhi.
