New partnership between UNRIC and 7 Billion Others
On selected International Days UNRIC, in partnership with the GoodPlanet Foundation, will post video clips from the 7 billion Others project to communicate the fears, dreams, ordeals and hopes of citizens from all over world.
A visionary idea from the photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, 7 billion Others is an ongoing project that started in 2003, consisting of over 6,000 interviews filmed in 84 countries to create a portrait of humanity today and show everything that unites us, links us and differentiates us. The UNRIC and the 7 billion Others teams have partnered to make the video portraits available in as many languages as possible. We chose the International Day of Cultural Diversity on May 21st as a pilot day for this new partnership and it is available in 8 European languages.
