The Thursday Three (a few days late! ;D)

Here are this week’s links!

1. Check out Global Initiatives, an organization that “promotes positive social change and sustainable global development through international events and media projects”: http://www.globalinitiatives.com/.

2. Youth Action for Peace (YAP) is a European-based movement which “aims for societies of peace, justice, and self determination” and encourages “dialogue in local communities through the active participation of young people.”  Visit YAP’s website: http://www.yap.org/.

3. Playing For Change is a non-profit “dedicated to connecting the world through music.”  The organization’s achievements demonstrate not only the immense power of music, but also the effects of global cooperation, sharing, and effort.  Watch PFC’s famed original music video, a rendition of “Stand By Me,” at the following website: http://www.playingforchange.com/.  (Also check out http://www.playingforchange.org/.)
