Connecting Global Minds
The InterNations History Vote is an unprecedented global voting initiative, presented by our Global Partner CNN on occasion of its 30th anniversary and the CNN 30 campaign.
The InterNations History Vote gives our members from all over the world the opportunity to vote and share their view on 30 of the biggest news events from the last 3 decades: from the Hong Kong handover or the Chernobyl disaster over the fall of the Berlin Wall and the release of Nelson Mandela to the September 11 terror attacks as well as the death of Michael Jackson.
These pre-selected events may not always be the 30 most important stories of the last 30 years, but they do represent a wide range of headlines that moved the world. While many of these events were bad news, human tragedies even, nearly all of them made an impact on history or touched the lives of people around the world. The question remains:
Which events are the ones that affected us the most? And why?
The InterNations History Vote aims to shed light on this question and present a global picture on the effect of these 30 news events – based on our members’ individual judgment and personal experiences.
During the InterNations History Vote, InterNations members can:
- Vote on three events that affected their personal lives the most
- Share their own memories and stories about those events
- Comment and rate other members’ stories.
To reward our contributing members for their commitment to connecting global minds, InterNations will grant a flexible 1.000 € flight ticket voucher to the author of the highest-rated memory. The contributors of the second- and third-rated stories will receive an Apple iPod nano and a CNN Travel Kit.
