Flickr's Donuts campaign as Citizenship education

I see in the news that the We Demand Donuts campaign on Flickr has already won. If only ending global warming were so easy.

It set me thinking. Which is a better introduction for young people to becoming politically-aware citizens: a school mock-poll on the EU Constitution, or a daft (but successful) campaign on a popular public website? I know which I’d rather use as a teaching tool.

But perhaps I’m biased because I like donuts. See you in SF on the 16th.
