CNN International has launched “World View”, an initiative that aims to give voice to thousands of young people worldwide who have something to say about the impact of the United States elections on their country.
University students are encouraged to upload self-authored videos telling CNN why the 2008 US election is important to them. All videos can be viewed at CNN’s citizen journalism website. CNN International has been selecting the best to broadcast on air across CNN’s feeds in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
South African universities involved include the University of Cape Town, University of Forte Hare, University of the Free State, University of KwaZulu-Natal and the University of Limpopo.
