In a social experiment in Brazil, a group of adults were asked how they imagine the future of the world. Their answers ranged from terrible to worse – with responses stating an increase in wars to the complete destruction of the planet. The tables turned when those same people were shown videos of their children who were asked what they wanted to be when they grow up. Full of optimism and hope, the children spoke of their dreams to be teachers, artists and doctors.
The video is part of an independent project that is aiming to make people realize that in order to change the current reality, you have to first believe that it is possible. The cross-generational angle drives this point home: positive impact is within our grasp – and the first step is change of perception.
