4907644809_449c6d3710.jpgHi! Nuala here, writing today from Concordia University in beautiful Montreal. We're gearing up to broadcast from the Civicus Youth Assembly tomorrow. I've been chatting with a number of people taking part, and they have lots of ideas about issues our show should address.  Our open editorial meeting tomorrow at 7am and everyone is invited but as Kalmunity Vibe Collective are having a big party tonight we took a few ideas in advance, just in case......and voilà, here they are....

Cindy from Houston asks 'What do you owe your country of origin?'
Ousman from Gambia asks ' Should talking on a cellphone including hands-free while driving be banned?'
Urbain from Burkina Faso wants to ask 'Do we care about some disasters more than others' Urbain particularly was interested in chatting about the Burkina Faso floods and the Niger famine.
Here's a few related to this week's event:
Laura from Argentina wants to know 'How useful are conferences like Civicus?'
Salma who is Lebanese-Quebecer asks 'Why does 'youth' have to be a separate category when discussing global issues?'
Jaliya from Sri Lanka wants to know "What difference does youth activism make?'
And finally, Mohammed from Glasgow wants to talk about whether the media portrays youth in a negative or positive light.
What would you like to talk about on Friday, pop your thoughts below.
