What have you learned from your parents?
What makes you happy?
What difficult circumstances have you been through?
What does love mean to you?
5,000 people from around the world answer these and other questions on the website 6 Billion Others . The site was the idea of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, a French photographer and journalist who, along with his team, interviewed people in 75 different countries on a quest “to find out what separates and what unites us.”
It’s fun to click through the different interviews. Everyone has their unique perspective, but at the same time it strikes one how much of the human experience is universal: the sorrow of losing a loved one, the struggle to earn a living, the joy of being with family, the beauty of enjoying nature…
How would you answer the questions? And how do your answers compare to those at the other end of the world?
