Mixed Teams Track

The Mixed Team Track has been the core of the Youth Forum, since its beginning. We believe in its true virtue of learning about cultural difference and dialogue by doing.

Citizen Journalism

Welcome to the Citizen Journalism Track. As soon as you create content, we can put it up here.

Free Software for Creating Public Media

Audacity, an example of Open-Source Software

Free and affordable software is essential for citizen journalism, so that any citizen can create media without requiring a professional budget. This kind of software does exist as an alternative to the very expensive professional tools. For example, Adobe's Photoshop can be replaced by Gimp, a free, downloadable, open-source image manipulation program. Another alternative would be to use a program built into your computer's operating system. For example, instead of using Final Cut Pro or Avid for video editing, you can use iMovie if your computer has a Mac OS, or Windows Movie Maker if you have a Windows OS. Open-Source Software

For a complete list of Open-Source Software pages, view Category:Open-Source Software
  • Open Office is a productivity suite that can be used for a variety of purposes, including word processing, databases, and presentations.
  • Picasa can be used for digital photography importing and editing.
