You want to change the world, but where do you start? The world is really big, and there seem to be so many problems. Pick one. Zone in on it, and throw all your energy into fixing it. Technology offers great potential, especially for the global social good. But how do we convert social media into social change? How do we use it for constructive civic engagement? We have some ideas, and they revolve around you.  Help us shape the policy framework that will put the next generation of devices and applications into the hands of the next generation of users. To send a message to this world’s leadership that information and communication technology is essential for our future growth and development. We need you to help choose our priorities for the future.
