“Being creative and collaborative” is the motto of UNESCO’s Young Digital Creators (YDC). YDC is designed for young people of different cultures to gradually construct, through a collaborative process and creative tools, a deeper understanding of each other’s cultural values and shared perspectives on global issues of our time. YDC is a program making the Internet and the web work for the benefit of young digital creators around the globe.
Educators Kit is designed to help teachers and educators working in school, youth clubs and organizations to generate and manage project-based learning activities with young people. The focus is on creative use of information and communication technologies, global challenges of development, cultural diversity and dialogue among cultures.”

I work in UNESCO YDC project as a designer. My task is to design an instructional book for teachers around the globe of the material that Teemu and Joanna have designed and written in collaboration with UNESCO people. I am creating illustrations, making the layout of the book, designing typography and taking care of the print work. My aim is to make the book accessible to all cultures, easy to approach, easy to read and most of all engaging and inspiring to work with.
