Qatar Dream 2030 – Animated Video – Must watch

This is pretty awesome. I don’t know why I never noticed this video before but it was submitted to ILQ after it was found on a Japanese blog no-less.

It’s a great video brought to you by the National Day Committee. It is part of a live action series for children produced as part of the Dream 2030 campaign. The goal is to encourage the youth to work towards the 2030 vision! 3ajeeb!

Platige  Image (www.platige.com) was chosen, from a group of leading postproduction studios all over the world, by the representatives of the government of Qatar to cooperate with them on creating the promotional animation for “Dream 2030” – a social campaign directed at youg children.

The campaing is organised together with the State National Day Committee. It’s objective is to promote loyalty, solidarity and unity amongst the youngest Qatari — values important to the development of this relatively young nation. It also wants to promote creative thinking and motivate the youngest to hard work. It is a longterm project, it has been planned for the next 19 years.

I think it’s cool how it’s Disney style.

Freedom of Expression

    Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which the Qatari Government is a signatory of states: Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any medias and regardless of any frontiers.

    The Emiri Decision Number 86 of the year 2007 on the establishment of the Doha Free Information Centre marked yet another step towards establishing a State of rights and freedom of speech. The decision stipulated that the Centre be a non-profit organization, headquartered in Doha City, and have the authority to establish other affiliated centres inside and outside Qatar. It is worth mentioning that His Highness the Emir issued a decision in 1998 annulling the ministry of information, giving birth to a new era of freedom of speech where censorship was removed from local media.
