It is estimated that up to a billion people could be remote working by 2035. How will this impact local communities? Who will be the winners and losers and how can we make a positive difference for future generations?

The Covid 19 pandemic and internet technology changed the way we live and work forever. Our documentary series GLOBAL CIRCLER delves deep into the digital nomad lifestyle to discover the truth behind the growing phenomenon.

The term digital nomad has been around for a while but for most of society, it wasn’t on their radars until quite recently.

When the global Covid 19 pandemic broke out in 2020 offices shut down and people were forced to work from home. Post-pandemic many seized the opportunity to roam the world while working remotely from their laptops instead of being chained to a desk.

We will examine the digital nomad lifestyle and its impact on society. Is it a good thing or a bad thing? Who are the winners and losers? How do nomads make money while travelling?  Is the digital nomad life really as rewarding as it appears on Instagram?

We also want to examine the roots of nomadic life and see if there are any parallels between nomadic tribes and the digital nomads of today. What drives modern-day nomads to leave their homes, friends and families beyond the obvious wish to travel the world?

As remote working grows in popularity how can it be done responsibly and benefit local communities and future generations?
