As part of Google's mission to organise the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful, a YouTube Channel dedicated to promote and discuss freedom of expression on the internet is launched at Berlin conference. Where users from around the world are invited to upload videos & share stories about how the internet has changed the way we express ourselves. Channel will also serve as a central venue for Breaking Borders Award, organize together with Global Voices and Thomson Reuters. “The awards will honor outstanding web projects by individuals or groups who’ve shown courage, energy and resourcefulness in using Internet to promote freedom of expression, making us aware of diverse political viewpoints and standing up to those who censor information. The winners’ll be those who’re making a real difference,” announced Google. Closing date for submissions is Feb 15. Details on how to apply and opportunities to join award committee can be found on Breaking Borders website.
