You cannot predict the future because it is not here yet, but you can imagine how it should be. If all do this, you have a world of dreamers, not bad! But if you want the world to change you must come up with one common view of how the world should be and work towards it together. If you do this, than truly anything is possible! This conviction is what drives Martine Delannoy each day and night.
