Half full or half empty? What if we looked at things in a different way and changed the narrative to find creative solutions to make it overflow instead?
Just like the crow in Aesop’s fable who dropped pebbles into a jug until the water level rose high enough for him to drink, humanity has been brilliant in finding ways to progress towards creating a better future together.
But with all the global challenges that we face, how exactly do people across the world feel about their future, on an individual, national and global level? It turns out that the world is more optimistic than you might think.
According to the Global Optimism Outlook Survey, a survey commissioned by Expo 2020 Dubai, there’s a lot of optimism about what is yet to come and 89 per cent of people surveyed feel that it is down to individuals and communities, rather than governments and huge corporations, to unlock and shape those future opportunities.
