What will we eat in the future? Are computers the better decision makers? How does democracy work?
In this interactive book, 66 children from 24 countries think about their future and formulate their questions, worries, wishes, dreams and expectations. These thoughts are so important that they are the proverbial red thread running through the book. Daan from the Netherlands wonders whether life outside of earth is possible. Siwon from South Korea wants to become a superstar, but fears that robots could be better than her. Alma from Palestine wants education for all and Rachel from Moscow is wondering if men will also bear children in the future.
Sound factual texts focus on various topics, and multifaceted participatory projects invite young readers to experiment, to do research, to actively and creatively shape their own future and to get involved.
