about

Since 2016, we have asked the same 20 questions to over 1,000 people around the world, from Mongolian nomads to New York businessmen. The analysis of the first 20,000 responses delivers a clear message: as humans, we are much more similar to one another than we may think. This is the message we intend on spreading, convinced that in a world where everything has become globalised very quickly, it is necessary to promote a sense of human empathy, and to feel united in the face of our common challenges.

artistic concepts

Sparked by the desire to better understand the world, our goal today is to bring people together. The concepts we explore are designed to encourage self-questioning and of others, to discover the convictions and ideas of people on the other side of the planet, to have fun, to be moved, and to realise that we are all much more similar than we think!

“From Bolivia to Syria to the United States, you’ll learn more about humans than in any study. The plurality of these testimonies engages our own reflection on the world we are part of, and how to make it a better world, which is an essential quest for me.”*

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

*Excerpt from his foreword for our book “We Humans!”
