radio-tv emission

Hi,

How was the summer ?

We think your organisation is very professional and request your help.

I was wondering if you'd consider to team up with us to organize an  
international workshop together... 70% of the travel costs are paid  
back and 100% of the accomodation and food for the participants...  
the organisers earn some 100-200€/day+3 prep and wrap-up days...

We have 3 things we're working on:

- IT4YI = IT for Youth Initiatives... we programmed a set of tools  
that make a "Virtual Office", enabling working over the web.  From  
the summer of 2006, all Youth Initiatives all over the World have  
free access to all these tools, can make websites in a couple of  
minutes... hosting is offered by a Polish University. Anyway... it's  
really cool and the project won a price by the EC and the DG 4  
Education and Culture. We want your help to spread this news and  
learn Youth Leaders all over the Planet about this tool and push it  
to the United Nations: 1 open place where all youth initiatives can  
be mentioned and worked out, improved, ... we want to explain, give  
workshops on all this for the better of humanity and contribute to  
the creation of World Peace.



- the OLPC-Initiative= One Laptop Per Child ... I guess you've heard  
about this.  The MIT-Boston won a competition launched by Kofi Anan  
to make a 100 € computer.  Here it is:
wifi, can be powered by cranking ... open source, ....it's just  
great ... They are only available to governments... in orders of 1  
million ... the first orders have been placed ... and will arrive by  
the end of 2006.  Nice ... and what next?  We want to kick-start with  
your help the Worlds first RealWorld and Virtual World Workshop with  
groups of youngsters from the first world and those first LOADS of  
youngsters from developing countries ... we have techniques to link  
remote villages the internet and we want to explain them, give  
workshops on all this for the better of humanity and contribute to  
the creation of World Peace.

- the World Youth Peace Summits - Peace Bombs ... if you like large  
scale yet very intense Youth Leaders workshops ... we move into  
area's where there is some tension and where the domino stone can  
fall either to peace either to war again ... most tensions have a  
religious sauce ... we move in with 500 Youth Leaders from all over  
the World and all kinds of religions to make sure there is  
impartiality, create such a swirling dynamic and make sure there are  
so many things to discover, that local people that are trapped into a  
war-logic just forget what's happening and, before they know it, get  
their focus shifted from conflict to the co-organisation of a complex  
international/bi-lateral project in which they could participate in a  
near future.
We have the support of all the world religious leaders:




This one is the Grandson of Nelson MANDELA ... he's teaming up with  
you if you want to, as we are organizing the WYPS-Africa.
If you want to see more pictures, have a look at the gallery in the  
Virtual Office:

Reading your profile we thought you' really seem like a great great  
inspiration, we'd like you to be the contact person for your country  
on those topics and we're looking forward reading you.

If you decide to team up with us - which we really hope - we'd like  
to invite you to an online workshop to learn how to work in the  
Virtual Office.

The WYPS-Nigeria team will be giving this course themselves to you.   
The course is set up in such a way you can start it anytime.

To start... please go here:
