Driven by curiosity for global perspectives, Big Shared World began as a quest for better understanding of the shared values and issues in our world. Seeking to make connections with people and understand their unique perspectives, Colleen Waterston designed a travel adventure around asking people the same three questions. Their insights guided a transformative experience for Colleen, which she shares here and in her forthcoming book.
Colleen wrote these answers in 10 bright red Moleskine notebooks, then meticulously transcribed them into a spreadsheet which had been methodically coded. This analysis forms the foundation of the story of Colleen’s travels and transformation.
