about the innovation

Welcome to Scribers World™

What we do?

Create. Each month, our Scribers write prose, poetry, lyrics or narratives motivated by a Spark Word. Scribers bring their stories to life in their own ‘selfie’ video and share short films that capture their daily lives and passions with the Global Scribes community across 45+ countries. Together, they look beyond borders to discover their similarities and differences.

Connect. Scribers from around the world engage in live conversations, discuss youth-led topics, share personal anecdotes and announcements through global chats and weekly video calls. They ‘laugh and cry together’ providing a social safety net for one another.

Collaborate. Scribers join youth-led Global Scribes Teams and create projects and activities that explore art, food, film, science, nature, fashion and so much more. Together, they connect to peers across the globe, discover common interests and develop real world solutions.

Why we do it?

YOUTH UNITING NATIONS®: To build an empowered virtual community through the beauty of the written word & creative expression. Utilizing cutting-edge technology to build a progressive social network of engaged youth sparking innovation & collaboration, turning ideas & aspirations into reality, while building life experiences & meaningful relationships. 

---

Facilitating borderless communication and fostering genuine friendships among diverse global youth: social network of global peers that connects the unconnected;

Building an engaging global community based on trust, happiness, a set of golden rules and peer-to-peer mentoring: applying ethics and moral principles such as community ownership, leadership, accountability and transparency to the digital space;

Providing opportunities for experiential learning and creative expression in a safe, fun and trusted environment: youth learn to adapt to change, recognize opportunities and innovate in the face of challenges, matching the fluidity of their future job markets;

Sparking innovation and problem-solving across borders: interactive network of global peers designing solutions to challenges that interest them while having fun; alignment with the UN Sustainable Development Goals to spark innovation, communication and problem-solving across borders and by encouraging inclusive and sustainable actions at world scale.

Engaging stakeholders across the educational and professional ecosystem: mutually beneficial collaboration across public, private and corporate sector; creating data driven programs and solutions for youth constituents, businesses and educational institutions.

Testimonial from a Scriber: 

‘Global Scribes gives us a platform to interact with other people our age from all around the world. Not in many parts of the world do we see people of different cultures and nationalities communicate with each other. Global Scribes breaks this stereotype. We all have something to contribute. One may be a storyteller. Another may be an inventor. Some may be artists, and other mathematicians. When we work together, we sure can make a change. Individually we are a drop but together we are an ocean. We must work together to spread love and peace’ – Keya, Scriber from UAE
