The Most Important Question Of Our Time

What can we do that honors and respects every human being on the planet?

What vision of the future can we imagine that is so beautiful and enticing that every person with their own unique cultural identity wants to be a part of that future? 

This video has a few answers to this question, but most of all, it is asking you. Because it may be one of the most important questions we need to answer.

This is a clip from the film "What Would It Look Like?" by the Global Oneness Project. You can watch the full film here.

Here are 2 more questions to ponder: What story about ourselves, with our unique identity, can allow us to live in harmony with every other cultural identity? And how can we realize a sense of our global unity while also celebrating and nurturing the world's rich cultural diversity?

Films For Action is a community-powered, digital library for people who want to change the world.

 

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Although we started out hosting community film screenings in the beginning and did so for many years, our digital library eventually became our primary focus. 

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated 4,000 articles.

“Independent media is dangerous because it allows people to speak for themselves. And when you hear someone speaking from their own experience - whether it's a Palestinian child or an Israeli grandmother or an uncle in Afghanistan or a refugee in the Calais refugee camp - it changes you. It breaks the sound barrier. It challenges the stereotypes and the caricatures that fuel the hate groups. You may not agree with what you hear - I mean, how often do we even agree with our family members? - but you begin to understand where they're coming from. That understanding is the beginning of peace. I really do think that the media can be the greatest force for peace on Earth. Instead, all too often, it is wielded as a weapon of war. We have to take the media back.” - Amy Goodman, Place to B at COP21
