The world can be beautiful and open, if we want it

Do you believe there is hope for the future? The world can be beautiful and open, if we want it.

In the film Dear mom and dad, we document what happens when 48 children from 12 different countries meet at a CISV camp funded by momondo and run by CISV. We asked the children to write to their parents how they see the world in the beginning and the end of the camp. We are proud and honoured to have been able to document the beautiful feelings and thoughts shared by the children.

They don’t come from the same culture, speak the same language or wear the same clothes, but none of that matters: jokes are shared, hearts are opened and friendships across borders are made.

momondo supports CISV International, a global non-profit organisation dedicated to educating and inspiring action for peace. By educating the next generation, and through building intercultural friendships based on cooperation and understanding, CISV aims to help children and youth to develop the skills they need to become informed, responsible and active global citizens, able to make a positive difference in their communities and the world.

momondo’s collaboration with CISV and the Dear mom and dad campaign are part of Let’s Open Our World; an invitation to cross boundaries, embrace our differences and open our world.
