She is an executive producer of Why Poverty?, which consists of  eight documentaries dealing with aspects of poverty. The films were shown around the world in November 2012 on more than 70 national broadcasters. In her talk Mette will focus on the value of asking why.
 
When we open peoples hearts, we often open people’s minds. 
If you’re poor enough, and you’re schooling is bad enough – you don’t really have an opportunity to compete.
We are wealthy yet we are poor.
Giving your aid and money is not a real solution to poverty.
Power and wealth created a greater divide.
