" The purpose of this theme, based on the idea that the planet is a living organism where globalization brings everything and everyone together, and that technology, regardless of its effect, shortens time and space, making communication between peoples, races, cultures and religions easier.
Looking at the map of the world, it is easy to see that all five continents fit almost perfectly, forming one, in fact, in the early days, America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Oceania were a huge land mass (Pangea) and have been, over millions of years, drifting closer together.
Like the "Jangada de Pedra" by Portuguese writer Jose Saramago, which proposed the relocation of Portugal and Spain on the European continent, forming a new Iberian continent, this challenge calls us to the idea of concentrating the 5 continents in one, with one ocean, making us even closer together and consciously reconnecting us with the planet, leaving us to the Gaia Hypothesis, proposed by James Lovelock in the 60's, arguing that the planet is a superorganism, a similar idea already shared by ancient civilizations."
