Globie, our lovely planet, needs help. He is going bald, trees are disappearing, afraid that he will no long be the play ground for the children, that he wanted to be. He needs drawings, poems, ideas, to manifest our home of the future.

When I was a kid, I trusted the adults, politicians, teachers and religious leaders. I always thought it was those who make the decisions, the ones who make the world work.
The more I learned, the more I discovered, that for thousands of years, the older wiser adults have never been able to achieve peace, to solve problems like poverty, or find a balance between nature and civilization.
It was only later in life I figured, maybe, just for a change, why don't the adults trust the children's dreams for a change, children's ideas as children's future is theirs, not ours.
It is the adults who said, never fight, respect your elders, be kind to others and animals, but the adults are same ones who join the army, go to war, flatten trees and make more roads, buildings and wealth and success seems more important than being kind or showing respect.
Helping Globie, is simply a journey where Dragana Djuric and myself, will assemble a large scrap book of children's dreams of the future. Drawings, songs, poems, signatures, quotes, everything that children want to see in the future we will record and we will try to show this to everyone, from a book, a mini movie, and the internet, and maybe one day, the men in power might once just pay attention to what children want, after all, children should have a voice too.
