This is a lovely short film by an international corporate giant. From the comments, many are cynical about its intent for marketing and the less-than-perfect actions of the corporation that made it. Such analysis is important, but behind the message lies hope and optimism and we definitely also need those.
The message resonates with the projects students recently completed in our Creativity and Work class. Looking at the creativity and innovations occurring in the classroom and around the world is incredibly hopeful, exciting, and inspiring. So, rather than judging the pros and cons of the corporation that creates this short film, it might be more interesting to examine what we are each doing to contribute to the world so that our children will experience more hope and opportunity.
