The reality of a village in Japan that decided (almost) everything has to be recycled, and where people started to look at trash differently - being mindful about the garbage each one (person/corporation) produces and nurturing the sense of caring for how we treat what we throw away. While the rest of the country has a recycling rate of around 20 percent, the village of Kamikatsu surpasses its neighbors with a staggering 80 percent.

On January 28, 1985, a series of well known musicians gathered for the "We Are the World" song which became an overnight hit worldwide. Since its release, "We Are the World" has raised over $63 million (equivalent to $141 million today) for humanitarian causes.
The Sustainable Developing Goals allows citizens, students, professionals, entrepreneurs, governments and societies to re-think and re-create a world our current and future generations will enjoy living in. Creativity and innovation towards social impact can be fostered by all.
