We’ve all heard about the American dream. Many people still see the US as a country where you can go from zero to hero if you only work hard and play your cards right. A country where, no matter where you came from yesterday, today you are considered American, and will be considered to be one tomorrow. A country where miracles happen and life can change overnight. A country of houses with white picket fences in the suburbs, where soccer moms and their polite children live, warm Thanksgiving dinners and cold, snowy and wonderfully shiny Christmas nights. That is what we think of when we hear the phrase “American dream”.
We live in a connected world, that is no secret. Everything we hear and see can be shared in a split second, thanks to new technologies. Precisely because we live in a ‘shared’ world, we are more conscious of the problems that our planet is facing and more aware of the fact that the actions we take in one place can have consequences in other parts of the world. A connected world also means that there is a need for a global, ecological mindset, with policies and politicians that work towards a common sustainable future.
