THE STORY:

There is an international student voice movement working to improve education and address global challenges. Student Voice Executive Director, Zak Malamed, and former U.S. Department of Education New Media Specialist, Erik Martin, both students at the University of Maryland, are developing a program to capture the global student voice movement and share stories of students creating change in their communities and nations. Through a mini-documentary, they will place audiences & viewers in the heart of conversations and scenes where young people are re-defining "education" and leveraging technology to organize their movement like never before in history.

Make a tax-deductible donation and follow Zak and Erik as they explore 4 settings of the student voice movement between February 4-22:

  1. London - A fully realized education system: they are joining a convening of student leaders from across Europe at OBESSU's Board of Directors meeting in London. During this visit, they will capture the international education climate and student experiences in Europe through the lens of students who are shaping the landscape.
  2. Germany - An intersection: student leaders of the European Student Voice movement, OBESSU and the European Students Union (each representing 15 million students across Europe), are shaping education and communities using technology as a means for organizing the movement internationally. These student leaders are working to help student refugees acclimate into their new homes across Germany. They will capture the role student voice and education are playing in addressing a global challenge - the refugee crisis.
  3. Jordan - A stepping stone: displaced students in Jordan are using basic internet connections and mobile devices to connect to ideas, learning tools and communities, while sharing their stories with the world and emerging as leaders in their communities.
  4. Israel - A common denominator: Minerva students Or Segal from Israel and Rana Abu of Palestine will be traveling to 10 European studies to discuss the role education plays in addressing global challenges. They will use this trip as a means to raise funds for increasing access to education for refugees. Zak and Erik will convene in Israel and/or Palestine to discuss how education connects those who otherwise would not be connected and what this means for our ability to address global challenges in the 21st century.
