Do you ever wonder, “Does what I do make a difference in the world?” The answer is YES, it does! Science and indigenous traditions all acknowledge the interconnected nature of our existence. As everything in this life is connected, every action we take has the potential to reverberate through the world as we know it.
By exploring the ripple effects of our actions in an interconnected world, the CONNECTIVITY PROJECT series highlights how different cultures and traditions from around the world, and even science, embrace the importance of interconnectedness. As we follow inspiring individuals who are making a difference in the lives around them, we see these connections exhibited all around us.
We’ll show the three short Connectivity Project films and take some time after each one to explore questions and what our own contributions can be. See the trailer…
Interconnections examines how different cultures and faiths from around the world have a common, time-honored awareness of an interconnected way of being.
Plants Have Wings looks into the amazing realm of plants and their pollinators. The film follows the story of an inspired bicyclist who is a champion supporting threatened Monarch butterflies.
Speaking Out! shows how activism is combined with interconnectedness. Inspired by the work of Love Canal activist Lois Gibbs, an indigenous high school student learns to speak out and advocate for the right to clean air for her family, school, and community in North Portland, Ore.
