In a very short period of time the Internet has had a significant impact on the way we live.
It has democratized access to information on a scale never before thought achievable. It has lowered and in certain instances removed the barriers to creative and self-expression and has also been responsible for challenging old business models while at the same time enabling new ones.
For centuries, access to and the creation of information was controlled by the few. The Internet has changed the status-quo profoundly – and is quickly becoming the communications platform for everyone.
ITU wants to know what the Internet means to you as a young person.
If you are between 15 and 24, record and send your video message to www.itu.int/go/wtpf-yourvoice and your message could be included at the Fifth World Telecommunication Policy Forum (#WTPF) taking place in Geneva from 14 to 16 May 2013.
