Nothing Beats the Real Thing! Youth Challenge – Sydney

On Thursday 3 September 2009 the NOTHING BEATS THE REAL THING! Youth Challenge on film/DVD piracy was held in Sydney.

70 students from 8 NSW schools worked through a program that challenged and entertained them – asking them to come to an understanding about the implications of film piracy for the sort of society they want to create. While most students (and teachers!) had at some time been ‘pirates’ themselves, they realised that there were considerable implications to their actions, and all agreed that it was a fair and proper civics and citizenship strategy to ‘just say NO.’

Surprise guest industry presenters were Michael Selwyn, MD Paramount Pictures Australia, and Katrina Risteska, singer dancer and actress.
