The half-day experience uses thought-provoking video content to set the stage for reflection and collaborative problem-solving. Our carefully crafted content has inspired thousands worldwide to find their roles in creating an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet. The program is divided into sections that include:
Where are we?
Understand our situation and see its urgency. We will look at the ways in which the current "dream" of the modern world is impacting the environment, our relationship with each other, and our own sense of purpose.
How did we get here?
You will explore how this all came to be and confront assumptions about modern society and industrial growth that are at the heart of the current crisis we are in—as a species and as a planet.
What is possible now?
We’ll come to see that a new future is possible, and that a huge, unstoppable movement is already in action, committed to creating a new story for the environment.
Where do we go from here?
We’ll define actions to take, on our own and with others, and new ways of being that are consistent with our personal vision. We’ll become empowered as agents for change, helping to create a more “environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, [and] socially just human presence on the planet.”
