We See Things Differently is a youth led, collaborative campaign to collect and connect our stories, our visions and our efforts to remake the world within one generation.

How can we get involved to help you take action? Join us on World Environment Day, June 5th for a kickoff webinar, or share your story through TIG's #WSTD Global Gallery and Panorama Sets

In the words of Kofi Annan, "Illicit drugs destroy innumerable individual lives and undermine our societies. Confronting the illicit trade in drugs and its effects remains a major challenge for the international community." To honour the June 21st Day we invite you to read Panorama articles about drug addiction and to get involved in The Youth Network for Harm Reduction.
There are over 20 million refugees in the world many who have fled their countries due to civil wars and ethnic, tribal and religious violence. On June 20 join us in honouring World Refugee Day to focus not only on the causes of their exile, but also on their determination and will to survive and on the contributions they make to their host communities.
Global Dignity Day Canada brings together role models from across the country to inspire and encourage students to make dignified, positive, and inclusive life choices as they develop into their best selves. The goal of this year's event is to highlight dignity as a vehicle to unify and broaden our sense of community, and instill the notion that one's actions can impact and enrich the lives of others. We're looking for youth role models who are examples of living with dignity to be featured in the Global Dignity Day Canada celebrations this October. Do you have someone to nominate? E-mail us at [email protected]!
"Music expresses that which cannot be put into words and that which cannot remain silent."- Victor Hugo. The Fête de la Musique, also known as World Music Day, is a music festival taking place on June 21, the summer solstice. Music is the sound of a society, of a time and a place. It articulates the ideas and emotions that "cannot remain silent." This refusal to remain silent is why music has so much social power. To celebrate world music day, we invite you to explore the connection between music and social change.

Community. Whether it's 50 kids at a hardcore show screaming along the lyrics to a local band's song, a really encouraging comment thread on a message board, or an art opening that just blows you away. I think that connecting with other humans who share your interests, passions and beliefs is the most...
Communication is key. A good leader listens and cares about everyone's wants and needs. In my opinion a good leader should be respectful and understanding. They should take the time and investigate problems and situations they might encounter. Relate to the public and you are a good leader.
I am inspired by Youth, by Voice, and by people who care. I am also inspired by the beauty of the world, which I think consists of nature, of art and of community.
