Our idea is to represent our entire global neighborhood through photographs and stories, creating a multi-media traveling exhibition: the World Portrait.
We're asking the children of the world to introduce us to the people of the world. We provide a curriculum for teachers and students to learn about their community and nominate people they know and admire.
The nominees span all walks of life--from a gardener in the Philippines who sings to his plants to a traditional healer in Niger bringing medicine to a community to an Australian teacher building a solar car with students.
We are collecting thousands of nominations from around the world and will assemble a panel of global experts to chose the final 100 nominees. The resulting World Portrait will enable us to picture this complex world simply: the World as 100 People.
