Impossible ideas are fundamental to have and to dream about, but more importantly, to make them possible.

Civil societies from all over the world have been sharing their ideas and experiences for more than 20 years in order to contribute to the building of a global community outside of governmental relations. This 19’ video is an excellent summary of one of the many dialogs that have been organized for this purpose. It took place during Rio+20 in June 2012 among members of the Chinese, European, and South American civil societies, who together, explored how each society is facing its own challenges: poverty eradication in China, the crisis in Europe, and the search for a new civilization model in South America.
The video is available in French, Chinese, English, and Portuguese.
