You may have been watching Andrew Marr’s History of the World.
Here is how he concluded the series after looking across time and human endeavour.
“Brazil is going to be one of the most important countries in the world in the century ahead. IF they can get the balance between a better life and democracy without destroying the environment, a big IF, but IF they can get that balance right here in Brazil, then perhaps mankind can get it right.”
A huge part of the ‘if’ we know is education. Can they make it work?
