This summer Soka University will be hosting the International Youth Media Summit (IYMS) from July 14-27, 2014. Currently, they are in the process of scouting delegates from all over the world who will represent their respective countries to participate in the Summit. The Summit’s mission is to transform youth into global citizens who will shape the future through media and action. The delegates will: explore the 7 Summit Issues with dynamic leaders who are making a difference in non-profits and NGO’s around the world; train with professionals in the Hollywood filmmaking industry; create powerful public service announcements inspired by the 7 Summit Issues; develop individual resolutions of action to present to the United Nations and to their own governments; create study guides to accompany completed PSA’s for use in their home countries by teachers, workshop leaders and themselves; and will engage in even more activities which are all oriented around realizing the Summit’s mission.
