In support of the upcoming 2002 UN World
Summit on Sustainable Development, Intelsat is sponsoring the global
distribution of one half-hour television special called "ONE CHILD – ONE
VOICE," a UN-endorsed program that inspires grassroots involvement in
worldwide environmental issues.

Intelsat has donated satellite capacity and financial aid for distribution
of the TV special that will be sent to nearly 3,000 broadcasters worldwide
for their unlimited use in public education programming. "ONE CHILD – ONE
VOICE" is a video, produced by award winning filmmaker Barbara Pyle, that is
based upon the true stories of children around the world to address a wide
array of environmental issues. The program calls for support of the TREE OF
LIFE campaign, which invites children worldwide to voice their support for
the goals of the UN Summit by drawing a leaf on a postcard and sending it to
be hung on an artist-created TREE OF LIFE. The Tree will be placed in
Johannesburg, South Africa at the UN Summit site for world leaders and
others to view. This year’s campaign is expected to be larger than the TREE
OF LIFE campaign surrounding the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, which boasted
leaves from over a million viewers from all continents.

"Without Intelsat’s generous donation and support we would never be able to
carry our important message around the world," said Barbara Pyle. "It is
imperative for people to understand that individuals can have a huge impact
on global environmental problems."

Tony Trujillo, Senior Vice President of Corporate Services, Intelsat Global
Service Corporation, added, "Intelsat is honored to be playing a part in
this inspiring and educational event. We continue to be very committed to
the improvement and health of the global and local community."

The UN Summit will take place in Johannesburg from 26 August through 4
September. For more information on ONE CHILD – ONE VOICE, or if your local
