Connectivity Project examines the idea of chaos theory and explores how our stories and actions can have a powerful ripple effect around the world.
How many times have you wondered, “Does what I do make a difference in the world?” Connectivity Project explores this ever-present question, in a visually stunning film and docuseries. Featuring interviews with tribal elders, noted scientists and naturalists, and environmental activists, the film weaves connections between science, culture and spirituality.
Through film discussions, we will unpack the "butterfly effect" and develop the awareness that what we each do makes a difference. Together, we discover that small actions can indeed have a large impact. How would we act differently if we saw the world differently?
In nature’s grand design, the vital connection between honey bees, our food supply and human society is boundless. Our take action “Plants Have Wings” session will be devoted to discussing the steep challenges and practical ways we can support our local pollinators.
HOST A SCREENING
Learn how you can host a screening and integrate Connectivity Project's educational resources into your current work and community conversations. Great for organizations, public, community leaders, academic, and students to cultivate a sense of awe, belonging, responsibility, and ultimately seeing that what we each do makes a difference - even during challenging times.
