Do you think social media can solve global challenges? I Facebook  connects the world togehter, and news are being posted so the whole world can see whats going on in their county and so on.

This article describes the situation of companies utilizing children in their production. It also tells about how no company wishes to be associated with underage labour as a subject. This article gave a larger view of the situation how the companies and producers think towards the situation, which made a bigger impact on me.

This article tells us about child labour in Apple fabrics. Shocking results..

Due to the massive population in India, and it's brutaly unfair caste system,  it's no suprise child labour is an issue. We as consunmers have to choose not to by products made by children.

Marte Sødal's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:06 AM

This video shows us an overwiev of how the system of child labour in India works. It tells us about the ignorance of the community, as well as the denial of childhood. To me it opened my eyes to all the differences there are in the world and to the fact that I should appreciate my life as it is.

Renathe Kristoffersen's curator insight, March 6, 2014 3:15 AM

This video hits my heart. It is so horrible to see whar child labour does to children in India.

Siri's insight:

My insight about this pictures is that it reflect the main problem in Ukraine in a very simple way. The main problem in Ukraine is that the country is torned between choosing either the east side (Russia) or the west side (EU).

My insight on this picture is that it reflects the situation in Ukraine. It shows us the reality in a fun kind of way by making a cartoon. It shows us that Ukraine is torn between east and west.
