A cattle herder in Cameroon, a brain surgeon in Texas, a farmer in Yorkshire: a look at working days around the world

Ever wondered what an architect in Mongolia and a hairdresser in South Korea could possibly have in common? These School of Life videos are about the thing that ties them, and billions of other people around the world, together: work. 

Love it or hate it, we've all got to , wherever we are. Especially in a world as connected as ours, we rely on other people's work all the time – whether they run the newsagent's down the road or work on a farm on a completely different content. But it's really rare that we actually get to see what a working day is like for people we might never meet, and that's what we love about these films: they're showing the human faces behind the goods and services we all rely on every day.

Check them out and let us know what you think – and if you'd like to make a short film about your working life, get in touch via contribute@ecnmy.org!
