Our global theme for 2019 is "Stories: With Great Influence Comes Great Responsibility"

The stories we tell, consume and share have the potential to shape who we are and what we become. With such influence, comes responsibility and as storytellers we have an obligation to ensure that the platforms, the content we create and how it gets distributed helps people become better and more productive citizens.
