As world leaders gather at the UN General Assembly this week, award-winning director Richard Curtis (Comic Relief founder, Four Weddings and a Funeral, Love Actually) asked the internet to take part in a video challenge with the answer to this question: What kind of world do you want to live in by 2030?
People had 24 hours to submit a video response, which we turned into a crowdsourced film to be presented to world leaders at the UN this week.
Hundreds of activists from Nepal to Kenya, India to Italy, the US and the UK, submitted video responses, including Mashable founder Pete Cashmore and actor and activist Idris Elba, who recently starred in Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. Each vowed to stay in the fight against extreme poverty and help all people live in dignity.
