Why this story is important
These words show us how each of us, deep down, has within himself a positive vision for the future, a hope. That hope is only to be sought and then rekindled, because we are the engine of social change. Sometimes you just need to investigate it a little more ... And this is precisely the value that history transmits to us. Seek within us the answer, to understand that we are not disconnected from our surroundings.
How this story was created
The story was created within the European project Enhance Civic Competences Through Sorytelilng, Erasmus Plus KA1 Giovani, by an international group, with people from Italy, Bulgaria, Romania, Spain and Poland. The inspiration came from the "seven billion others" project by Yann Arthus Bertrand. It was decided to take inspiration from this video and then reproduce it in a social key: what are our thoughts on society? How can we improve it? What would we like to change? The idea was, precisely, to create "a union of differences", many different visions united by the desire for change.
The methodology used was that of the participatory video: there was a collective elaboration from the beginning to the end, in particular in the way of conceiving the narration and conceiving the questions, which were articulated through a process of brainstorming and collective evaluation. The video was then shot with different roles for each person (cameraman, interviewer, subject filmed).
