Friends we are less than 24 hours away from This Is Our Time – TIME PROJECT 2015. We look forward to participating schools discussing such important issues as the use of Child Soldiers, the issues surrounding Disease Control, and the flagrant violation of young girls fundamental human rights as it pertains to basic education. Participating schools and UNESCO clubs will also be engaged in a 24 hour research marathon. They are engaged in a test created by youth for youth. Participants must devise the questions on behalf of their own country in essence they are saying “hello fellow youth around the world, here is what we want you to learn about us!” The most accurate participants will have their names announced here on the Time site.

2015 Marks the 20th anniversary of Time Project, 20 years of connecting youth of the world to the issues that matter most to them through the internet. We look forward to marking this event in less than 24 hours and celebrating the actual anniversary when we meet again on Time Day in November 2015.

With Thanks….

Thank you to all teachers, administrators, UNESCO and Youth club leaders for your role in Time Project 2012. Together we connected students with one another from nearly every point in our world and across 5 continents.

Together we challenged perceptions about Human Rights and Social Justice issues and we tackled the environmental challenges of our day. Together we studied about one another’s  history , geography, social issues and entertainment and we co-operated in a friendly research competition.
Together we united for one moment in TIME and the youth of the world understood that for them “This Is Our Time” to stand up for rights around the world.

Thank you for your role , thank you for your efforts but most of all thank you for your TIME! Hope to see you once again for Time Project NOVEMBER 29th 2013.  And LIKE US ON FACEBOOK .
