Having presented the “One Home Journey” Project in an earlier session of World Unity Week, we decided to provide the audience, in this second session, with a flavour of the transformational power this 7-year endeavour could have on people, homes, communities, all over the globe.

And hence the session took the approximately 70 international viewers through an artistic, poetic and truly transformational journey of discovery, inspiration and empowerment with a special highlight on the message of hope from refugees, honouring World Refugee Day. After reading in turns our One Home Journey collective vision for the next 7 years, inviting all to activate their imaginations and travel with us, we listened to Enzo’s powerful song.
