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. We want to hear from the young leaders around the planet: What is your vision for a better world? What issues are important to you and what you doing about it? 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
"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.
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]!

Education is like sowing the seeds, maybe we can’t see the influence in a short time, but with the small power which can be gathered using it, we can change the world with it.
I am inspired by a lot of things in my environment but stories, documentaries and insights on transformation inspire me the most. Many countries in my continent, Africa, are lagging behind in diverse areas on the global outlook and my country, Nigeria, is not left out. While African countries have many...
What inspires me the most are the people from different walks of life who contribute something to the society and the people one way or another.

I'm inspired by leaders who do not look to push their own personal agenda, but instead empower others to share their vision as well. Leaders who create trusting community in this way inspire me.
