Today TH!NK ABOUT IT announces the TH!NK2 bloggers who will be given immediate spots in TH!NK3: Developing World.
TH!NK3 focuses on the Millennium Development Goals in the lead up to the UN's high-level plenary meeting in September 2010. Bloggers will cover the biggest issues in sustainable development: housing, food, water, disease, tourism, business, gender equality and more.
This is the biggest TH!NK ABOUT IT to date - with some 100 bloggers coming together in Brussels to launch the 5 month competition on March 22, 2010.
The prizes for TH!NK3 are also considerably different than in the last two rounds....
The top bloggers in the competition will participate in reporting expeditions to Asia, Africa and New York City, where they will be given the opportunity to report about development issues from on the ground! Details about the travel opportunities will be released soon.
