Transcript of Changing Perspectives

Big Boy. Rapero, 19 años
"Deseo que el mensaje del rap se aproxime a los jóvenes para concienciar y progresar juntos en un futuro mejor. Estas ideas constructivas harán mis sueños realidad". El rap es un estilo proscrito. Big Boy y la veintena de sus compañeros están condenados a la clandestinidad y las autoridades tratan de desprestigiarles
Sami Mosayevi. Artista, 27 años
"Me gustaría retomar mis alas y sentirme libre para viajar a cualquier lugar del mundo, sin pertenecer a ninguna parte. Querría probarlo todo". Las aficiones o la vocación de uno también chocan a menudo con el muro de las prohibiciones
Naser. Futbolista, 24 años
"Mi vida es el fútbol y mi sueño sería jugar en la liga profesional en Europa". El 70% de la población iraní tiene menos de 30 años.

What problem are they talking about?
7 billion
How long would it take you to count to 7 billion?

What could the population be by 2045?
How many people are born every second?
How long did the average person live in 1960?
If 7 billion people stood shoulder to shoulder, which city would they fill?
How many mega cities were there in 1975? Which were they? How many now?

Carbon footprint

The Guardian’s Top 100 Women
(A celebration of the centenary of International Women's Day.)
Aung San Suu Kyi? Oprah Winfrey? Tanni Grey-Thompson? JK Rowling? Even, dare I say it, Margaret Thatcher?

Women make up between 70% and 80% of the world's poor, illiterate and refugee populations.

A girl growing up in Chad today has about the same chance of dying while giving birth as she has of going to secondary school.

While girls often do better than boys at school, women working full-time in the UK are paid on average less per hour than men – 40 years after the Equal Pay Act – and fill just 12.5% of boardroom posts in leading companies.
Shirin Ebadi, the human rights activist and first Muslim woman to win the Nobel prize, has already won recognition.

Others are less well known: the Indian lawyer who took on the case of a destitute woman who died giving birth in a Delhi street and won a landmark ruling from the high court last year for women in a similar position.
Reader’s response
I vote Lorella Zanardo because she is doing a fantastic job to educate Italian adolescents to watch tv in a discerning way, which is something missing completely in Italian schools. She is now an "Internet star" and travels the world with her documentary, Il corpo delle donne, about the mis-representation and stereotypes of women's bodies on the Italian tv. If you haven't done it yet please watch it. In a country dominated by Berlusconi's media and vision Lorella, a woman like us but with a big vision, is making a difference. Her educational project is almost totally self financed.
