About A World of Work

A World of Work aims to cultivate appreciation for individual contributions to building this world through their ideas, skills, and commitment to their craft.

Each contributor to the project answers a questionnaire and submits relevant photos that will help our editorial staff shape into a short biography. The biographies will be shared via this website in the form of flipbooks. People from across the globe are invited to tell their stories. The biographies will also, we hope, help students develop an interest in the life stories of others, and stimulate them into writing their own biographies of people they know, people they have met, or whom they would like to know more about. The various life stories will help cultivate students’ interest in literacy (reading and writing) as well as in various jobs and professions. We hope that contributors both young and old will enjoy connecting with others and appreciate what each of us has to contribute to this world though our work.
