Student G-20 mirrors summit
PITTSBURGH -- Hundreds of students around the world will mirror the work being done next week at the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh by using technology to interact.
From their schools and cities this week they will use broadband connections, Webcasts, Internet lines and video conferencing to try to solve the very issues that bewilder world leaders.
Those issues include energy, the environment and the recession.
The idea for a student summit was born shortly after the summit was announced in May. Several Pittsburgh teachers approached the not-for-profit World Affairs Council seeking to take the meeting to students.
The student meeting includes 2,000 youngsters in such countries as Brazil, South Africa and Italy.
