We are much more the same than we think

The association 20 Questions to the World conveys a clear message: We are much more the same than we might think

We are spreading this message because we are convinced that it is necessary to promote a sense of global community and human empathy to solve our increasingly globalized issues, be they economic, social or ecological.

Since 2016, we have been asking the same 20 very open questions about education, the future, religion, happiness, etc. to about 1,000 people around the world, from more than 80 nationalities, and with very varied social profiles. For each of our interviewees, we also gather some social data: age, place of living, number of children, years of study, etc. Shuffle it all together and you get a fun attempt at understanding the human being.

 

We have the intuition that beyond the spectacular and the mediatic, the world is not so bad. What if we weren't focusing on the right things? We easily categorize others for their political orientation, their religion, and even their skin color. Is this what is essential? When everything seems complicated and we don't know how to distinguish right from wrong, we have to go back to simple things. 

20 Questions to the world is an invitation to see the world through the most basic prism that is that of the human being. It is an invitation to listen to people’s opinions in a process of understanding and learning. Finally, it is an invitation to consider differences as a source of curiosity, rather as a sterile source of fear.

Today, we design creative concepts to spread our messages in an enthusiastic and artistic manner.
