Abstract: 

Picture Our World is a project created by university students giving cameras to children in order to communicate cross-culturally through photography, empowering its participants to be empathetic global citizens. This paper will present the rationale behind the Picture Our World project and suggest why its story should be told through a documentary film. This rationale will be contextualized through a study ofglobalizations affects on children. I will present a literature review of the work done to date on this subject demonstrating that the Picture Our World project is both unique and important in its processes and aims.
