International Schools CyberFair! 

Calling all schools, businesses and youth organizations! 

It is time to get started on your International Schools CyberFair project! 

The theme for CyberFair 2007 is Empower and Unite! "  

Co-sponsored by Global SchoolNet and the World Future Society, students are encouraged to prepare for the future "

  • by thinking about their own future plans,
  • the conditions that will affect the future of their community,
  • and issues of global importance!

We are looking for projects that tell about people, places, businesses --  that serve to "empower, motivate, and encourage positive change." 

This is a wonderful opportunity to work together to tell the world about the great things that are happening in your local community.  

"CyberFair will help fulfill some of the promise of the Internet as a platform for bringing the world`s cultures, schools and young people together," said Vinton G. Cerf, co-inventor of the Internet and now senior VP at Google
