We are happy to announce the partnership between Challenge:Future and TakingITGlobal.

TakingITGlobal, which is also known as TIG, is a charitable non-governmental organization focusing on global issues by promoting awareness and engagement among global youth. TIG's mission is to enable a collaborative learning community which provides youth with access to global opportunities, cross-cultural connections and meaningful participation in decision-making by:

-Harnessing internet technologies to cultivate youth leadership and engagement in social issues

-Bridging the continuity gap that causes fragmentation between and within generations of youth movements.

-Championing the role of young people as key stakeholders in all aspects of society

As of February 2009, TakingITGlobal's global membership numbered over 230,000. It is notable for receiving a number of awards for its work with global youth as well.
