‘Stand Up and Take Action!’ with Ustream, Skype and the UN Millennium Campaign

Ustream was created to enable video communication opportunities for
anyone, and this week we’re powering some important global
conversations that aim to end poverty. We are partnering with the
United Nations Millenium Campaign to foster conversations about the
most important issues facing our generation during “Stand Up and Take
Action!,” the annual mobilization where citizens gather at events
around the world to demand that world leaders eradicate extreme
poverty by 2015.

As part of the program, Ustream is collaborating with Skype to enable
video calls about global poverty between world leaders, celebrities
and citizens globally to be broadcast on the internet live via
Ustream’s interactive video broadcasting platform. The Skype calls
taking place between world leaders, celebrities, and citizens globally
will be broadcast on the Stand Up Take Action! page on Facebook and on
Ustream here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/stand-up-against-poverty

Those participating in the Skype video calls and Ustream broadcasts
include former Irish President Mary Robinson as well as African
entertainers Femi Kuti and Angelique Kidjo. The calls will take place
throughout this week, leading up to the Stand Up and Take Action!
Weekend, Oct. 16-18, when millions of citizens will take part in
activities demanding that world leaders keep their promises to achieve
the Millenium Development Goals.

We hope you will join in the conversations through Facebook, Social
Stream (Twitter) or Ustream chat.To learn more about getting involved
