Global Peace Starts With International-mindedness

'Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth.' - Marcus Aurelius

Yet we all believe that truth is "on our side." This makes sense because who in their right mind would choose to do anything if they do not believe that it is the right thing to do? If all we hear and see tell the same story, of course we will believe that it is the truth. An opportunity and our willingness to hear other's opinions, examine their sources of information, and question their line of reasoning - this is how we build Buddies Without Borders Online Forums for teens around the world.

Each team consists of teens from different countries to generate real-world international-mindedness. A team can only win if the team members collaborate and create a joint solution. Winners earn community leadership and international internship training opportunities. Changing the world is fun when we do it together.

This Spring, we are exploring a fun but serious topic: the fashion industry. If your school has a fashion club, what is your opinion about fast fashion and eco-fashion? What do you think other teens will say? The application deadline is March 24th. Join us! How Do We Look? From Fast Fashion to Eco-Fashion
