Battle for Borneo

"We're looking for ten amazing young leaders to spend five months in Borneo to implement theDeforestACTION project in the jungle and connect with the world though the web, providing updates for millions of students across the globe who are responsible for driving, developing and owning the project.

TakingITGlobal is working together with Microsoft Partners in Learning on DeforestACTION, a global action project involving students from around the world in protecting the world's forests. We've teamed up with acclaimed conservationist Dr. Willie Smits and
Orangutan Outreach to develop a project that will save endangered rainforest and orangutans, create awareness about the destruction caused by deforestation, restore a full forest eco-system and provide a sustainable livelihood for the local community. The project will also create the world's largest and most technology rich orangutan sanctuary on earth."

Myself, Kirsten Falkenburger, along with my sister have applied to be part of this competition to have two of the 10 spots to go to Borneo. I would greatly appreciate the support of the youth for biodiversity to go vote and rate our video.
