Description of Our Team: 1. Sia, H.Y. 2. Low, Keith 3. Ong, Andrew
Project Description: Out of strong interests in international trade affairs and concern over its potential impact worldwide, the team has embarked on Doors to Diplomacy Category 3: "Trade/International Economics". The team aims to initiate an international dialogue and exchange of ideas with youths around the world about the importance of international trade relations and diplomacy. These issues affect individual citizens as well as governments and businesses worldwide, and establishing a web-based education package on such an important topic would be of utmost relevance, especially with the unfolding economic events like the Euro Zone Debt Crisis. The target audience would be mainly teenagers ranging from the age of 13-18 who might not have that many opportunities to engage in discussion of current affairs with youths from all over the world. The youth-friendly portal aims to educate our future leaders on the issues of international trade and diplomacy, providing them insights into economic challenges from varied perspectives.
