Global Village Contest details
For this contest we are looking for poetic ideas and philosophies that express
how the combination of our communities is creating a global village.
Travel, gadgets, communication devises, people, economies, weather, terror,
let us know what creates a global village, what maintains it, why it is
important, anything that gets your ideas across about this topic.
Global village is a term coined by Marshall McLuhan who envisioned the world interconnected via electronic communications.
The world is perceived as shrunk to the size of a village,
both because of mass communication and also in relation to the way
in which changes in one area are likely to affect the rest of the world.
The natural disasters as of late are a good example of how what affects
one part of the world, affects us all.
