The NOPOOR Project


Around the world, the gap between the rich and poor is spiralling out of control. Today, 85 people own as much wealth as the poorest half of humanity. Extreme inequality causes a range of health and social problems. It stifles social mobility, keeping some families poor for generations, while others enjoy year after year of privilege. It fuels crime and even violent conflict. These corrosive consequences affect us all, but the impact is worst for the poorest people. At the core of the films NOPOOR is an intense worldwide discussion: What can bring some real comfort to the lives of millions of people? Is it a matter of resources? Political will? The right framework? Five years of research, four continents, one vision: The film accompanies the research project NOPOOR in which over 100 researchers worldwide currently work on finding new ways to end extreme poverty in the world.
