Help Translate the Top 10 Questions of Our Time Hi, I'm Leif Utne with QuantumShift TV and Conversation Week 2008. Last month, we asked you to suggest questions for Conversation Week's list of the "Top Ten Questions of Our Time." This list will be used to stimulate dialogue about the challenges facing humanity and the planet during this year's Conversation Week which takes place in living rooms, cafes, libraries and other public spaces around the globe from March 24-30. Out of more than 600 submissions, we winnowed the list down to 50 great questions designed to stimulate dialogue. Then, nearly 1,500 people in 39 countries voted for their favorites. The result... 10 powerful questions that go to the heart of the issues we all face -- questions about things like leadership, our children's future, living sustainably, ending violence, and finding balance in this chaotic world. Now, to make this year's Conversation Week truly global, we want your help again, this time with an experiment to break the language barrier by translating these Ten Questions into as many languages as possible. Just make a short video of yourself speaking one or more of this year's questions in a language other than English. You can see the full list of questions on the ConversationWeek.org website. Make sure to state your name and location somewhere in your video, and please tell us in English what language you're speaking. Then upload it to QuantumShift.tv with a title like, "Top Ten Questions - Spanish" (or Mandarin, or Swahili, or Klingon) and the keywords "Conversation Week 2008." By uploading your video on QuantumShift TV you give us permission to use your footage as part of Conversation Week's promotional efforts. We'll take your videos and remix them into a multilingual invitation to the whole world to join the conversation. And using a cool tool called dotSUB we'll enable you to add subtitles in any language. So think globally, and talk locally. Join us for Conversation Week 2008.
