CATEGORY D THEME: HAPPINESS CULTURE WITH SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
PRESIDENT OF URUGUAY
We have arrived to an alarming point: extensive and risky working days, excessive consumerism that ravages the planet, dehumanized relationships based on technology and an insane rush. It seems, as we are all too busy following directions and working to “have a good life” that we overlook the everyday simple things that really makes us happy.
Family company, friends, pets, nature, health, physic and cultural activities, hobbies, little pleasures, sometimes we even forget to eat peacefully and taste every bite.
Constantly we should question what really makes us happy and makes us fell good everyday. As well as what are our priorities towards ourselves and others.
We have to take away the selfishness and become in giving and respecting beings which are responsible of the repercussions their actions have and that contribute to their enviroment and society. If we manage to be happy people, full, conscious, that is part of a community, or a country or the whole world, we will be the ground for change and to create better societies, and in the future better generations, capable of setting aside the obsolete instructions of the pass and achieve a true and lasting HAPPINESS CULTURE WITH SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.
