On Monday October 6 the Youth Forum fellows at this year’s ITU Telecom World in Geneva didn’t only have the great honor to meet with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to kick-off the “Connect a School, Connect a Community” initiative. We also had the great pleasure to enjoy a refreshing speech by Singapore’s Acting Minister for Information, Communications and the Arts (Mica) Lui Tuck Yew’s over our lunch.
Apparently, Minister Lui likes animals and thus stories form the animal kingdom. He certainly woke up some of the participants in the room after a long morning of speeches but most importantly still made a valid point. And most of the Youth Forum fellows probably won’t forget the lesson learned this day.
