The aim of this project is to construct an image database for establishing connections across nations (in synchronous and asynchronous time) in order to breakdown barriers of stereotypical understandings, by interacting with and collaborating with one another on mutually relevant issues using several visual media for digital display.

Children, young people and adults from all around the world are invited to participate.
