AIDS2010 Day Two: The Wisdom of Youth

PuppetToday was a blast, because I spent it with my intellectual peers — puppets, show people and youth! In this video blog entry from AIDS2010 in Vienna you’ll meet some amazing young people from around the world who are making a difference in their communities. You’ll also be as charmed as I was by a program that teaches children in Africa about HIV/AIDS through puppetry.

If there is one thing I have learned, it is that these young people can speak for themselves. So I’ll let them. Thanks for watching!

Be sure to keep checking for my daily updates — tomorrow will be a report from the first human rights march ever held from the international AIDS conference, to be led by Annie Lennox.

Meanwhile, please be well.

    I love this video, Mark. In particular, I love that you give these youth activists a chance to speak directly to us.

    Hope you don’t mind, but I’ve linked to your video at my blog.

    Loved the interaction with the puppet, he looked old and wise, and the kids looked young and wise. Good contrast. You’re doing a great job, and thanks for keeping us in the loop!
