The future we want!
We asked the Progressio family across 11 countries, "what is the future you want?" This brand new short film brings together the hopes and aspirations of people from Peru, El Salvador, Zimbabwe, Yemen and the UK.
'The future we want' is the theme of Rio+20. Twenty years ago, the Rio Earth Summit set an ambitious agenda for global change. Now, with only 2 months to go until Rio+20, there has never been a more urgent time to think and act for the future we want.
In the face of the challenges ahead, urgent action is needed. But before we act, each of us needs to think carefully about the future we really want to work for. It’s a chance to look beyond the bustle of the now and take a longer view.
But what might that future look like? A just world, where everyone can live a life free from poverty? A sustainable world, where natural resources are protected for future generations? A responsible world, where we respect the natural world and live with care and concern for the needs of others?
