So there’s an idea going around called Colombia 2025 which I found on ColombiaNews.tv in their links section. It comes from the Vice President’s office and the basic premise is to imagine what Colombia could be in less than 2 decades. While good on one side, the message of how it should be is quite disappointing, personally. The makers of the piece envision Colombia as leaders in the carbon footprint, eco-city, green agenda, as well as leaders in video games and animation (bread and circuses) and last but not least, they’ll be leaders in bio-engineering.
I take issue with just about everything listed in the video except for the general idea of ‘Can Colombia be more than what it is?’. The answer is obviously ‘yes’, but not this way.
My rating? A good concept but bad content…plus I think Colombians (or anyone for that matter) should be looking towards the next few years and not almost two decades away. But as the comments say, having a long-term vision has its merits.
