The U.S. Global Development Lab is a new entity within USAID that brings together a diverse set of partners to discover, test, and scale breakthrough solutions to end extreme poverty by 2030. As part of the kickoff of the Global Development Lab, TechChange worked with USAID staff to develop an animated video commemorating the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web.

To gather content for the video, TechChange interviewed multiple experts, asking each about how the creation of the World Wide Web has influenced international development over the past 25 years, as well as how increased connectivity will benefit the world’s poor. TechChange’s creative team then worked with USAID staff to create a script, storyboards, artwork, and animations that are featured in the video below:
