"IB students - welcome to your own area. Here you will find information on global issues, as well as resources and materials, suggestions for ways in which you can respond to the issues, and links to other relevant websites. This is the place for you to find out more, to share your understandings, and to turn your newly acquired knowledge into action. The area For everyone contains postings of general interest. If you wish to discuss global issues, then visit the forums. Whether you're a PYP, MYP or Diploma student, you can have your say in a forum dedicated to your programme."
