Imagine a world without international standards.
Due July 20th, 2015 - This year the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) are organizing a video competition to raise awareness of the importance of standards in our daily life.
Your challenge is to imagine a world without international standards. Picture it, life would be much more complicated! For example, it would be much harder for countries to exchange goods and services, or just communicate. Everyday tasks like online shopping or taking money out of the bank would be almost impossible because standards provide a form of common language that makes things work with each other.
Now focus on just one example of something that would not work or that we could not do if we didn’t have international standards. Get your friends, family, and colleagues to help you and capture this in a 15-second video (including a 2-second clip provided at link below) and that’s it!
