BY MARINA POTANINA
@ VOL 12 ON DEC 11, 2010

Marina Potanina is the president of a charity foundation called To Kids About Kids. In her presentation she talks about the project, and the creation of an animated series about school life for a group of kids, with one of the main characters being a girl in a wheelchair.

Marina believes that if we start by talking to kids about these issues, that our society will be changed.  (in Russian)
