On selected international days, UNRIC, in partnership with the Good Planet Foundation, will post video clips from the 7 billion Others project to communicate the fears, dreams, ordeals and hopes of citizens from all over world.
A visionary idea from the photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, 7 billion Others is an ongoing project that started in 2003, consisting of over 6,000 interviews filmed in 84 countries to create a portrait of humanity today and show everything that unites us, links us and differentiates us. UNRIC and the 7 billion Others team have partnered to make the video portraits available in as many languages as possible.
The Brussels based United Nations Regional Information Centre for Western Europe - UNRIC provides information on UN activities to the countries of the region. It also provides liaison with institutions of the European Union in the field of information. Its outreach activities extend to all segments of society and joint campaigns, projects and events are organized with partners including the EU, governments, the media, NGOs, schools and local authorities.
