background

One World International has been developing its use of video on the web over the last 12 months, in the belief that it represents a powerful tool for amplifying a diversity of voices. However, we realised that people do not want to watch 30 minute documentaries on their computer screens. So we have tried to develop a way of presenting video more appropriate to the net and more effective in communicating for social change. One World TV takes an innovative step beyond simple webcasting by providing an interactive forum for collaborative storytelling on a global scale.
