It's not that often that you get to see such a colorful mix of children from so many different countries and regions all in one place. Seeing these children in their national uniforms at the KWN Global Summit just makes you realize how rich, colorful and diverse people of the world can be.
Furthermore, observing these young children encountering cultural identities that are completely different than their own, exchanging ideas and discovering new perspectives along the way, makes you realize how meaningful cultural exchanges such as these are. Their talk on human rights, global issues, hunger, sanitation and environment were full of passion and energy, deeply moving those who listened.
"Lack of tolerance" was one of the world's many issues the children pointed out during their proposal. There's no exaggeration to say that the key to solving it lies in the heart of children such as these, who are more than willing to accept others and learn from cultural identities other than their own.
As adults, it is our duty to listen to these young, fresh minds that could very well become the change makers of the future to come. Let's hope their dialogue continues so that the world becomes a better place for all of us to live in the future.
