In the next 100 days the seven billionth person in the World will be born. If you had the opportunity, what would you tell him or her about the world we live in?
This is the premise for the 7 Billionth Person Project. This simple, but powerful initiative, is seeking multimedia submissions from around the World containing messages directed for this new born. I find this project truly fascinating especially when you see the similarities that exist in messages from a number of different countries from around the world. Below is just a couple examples of some of the artwork you can find currently on the site, but I encourage you to take a look at their entire collection or even submit something of your own.
“Don’t be afraid to really dive in” – Calvin, Taiwan
“No More War” – Leo Chan, USA
