IDM is an organization created by Ron Paulsen and Kelsey Griggs in the Winter of 2007. IDM stands for “Informed Decision Making”. What IDM plans to accomplish to is bring a general understanding of today’s politics, global issues, and humanitarian issues to the youth of the world. Many youth in general do not have a firm understanding of many of these issues and they will one day need to deal with them and/or live with them. IDM wants to cover many topics such as government elections and the importance of them, global warming issues, deforestation, genocide, and terrorism.
