Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):
At FIGHT we strive to bring awareness of social issues into the world. We want to give people, from any background, the ability to share their stories, to tell us what they’re fighting for and to bring us on board.
We want to create a world where no-one is ignorant, where countries are neighbors and work together to solve problems.
We don’t want judgment and we don’t want prejudice.
To achieve this we are in the process of creating an online platform where people can share media, mostly video stories, to tell the world what they are FIGHTing for. Through such a popular worldwide tool we hope that a multitude of people will join us, to ensure that their stories will be heard and that everyone else in the world will learn that bit more and take another step towards eliminating the prejudice, ignorance and misunderstanding we so commonly encounter.
