    Wow this is just so cool!! In Denmark people started an initiative
    called "The Human Libray".

    humanlibrary.

    Inside certain libraries you can choose to 'borrow' a person
    - instead of a book - to listen to the history of their life
    for about 30 minutes.

    The point? Limiting prejudice.

    Everyone has a 'title' such as 'Unemployed', 'Refugee', 'Bipolar',
    or what have you - but once we listen to their story,
    we will always be given reasons
    to realize even deeper
    - why we should never "judge a book by its cover" 1f609. 2764.

    An innovative and brilliant project
    that by now is active in fifty countries!
    An initiative of The Human Library 2764.
