Media connects people to their world, gives voice to their ideas and dreams, and equips them with knowledge to improve their lives and the lives of others. In all these ways, media catalyzes participatory citizenship, on both a local and global scale. But even in this age of pervasive media, many millions of people marginalized by political and economic barriers lack access to even the most basic tools of information -- thereby depriving them of valuable input and connection, and depriving the rest of the world of their voices.

Ashoka Changemakers and Google hope to change that by inviting the world’s citizens to enter 'Citizen Media: A Global Innovation' competition. The entry period for the competition is now open until Sept 14, 2011 and will be packed with activities that would engage our thought process around the theme throughout the participation period.
