Documentary: Schooling the World (2010)

Films For Action

For the next month, the film-makers who created Schooling The World have generously made their film available to us in the spirit of the Gift.

Instead of setting a price and transacting before you’ve seen the film, they are turning the tables and allowing you to experience the film and gift back according to your values, your means, and the quality of how the film may have gifted you. Let’s show the film-makers that the gift economy can work!


Film summary:

If you wanted to change an ancient culture in a generation, how would you do it? You would change the way it educates its children.

The U.S. Government knew this in the 19th century when it forced Native American children into government boarding schools. Today, volunteers build schools in traditional societies around the world, convinced that school is the only way to a ‘better’ life for indigenous children. But is this true? What really happens when we replace a traditional culture’s way of learning and understanding the world with our own? SCHOOLING THE WORLD takes a challenging, sometimes funny, ultimately deeply disturbing look at the effects of modern education on the world’s last sustainable indigenous cultures.

The Amazon need your help!

KEEP THE OIL IN THE GROUND

For as long as I remember I have always wanted to visit the amazon jungle, see the amazing wildlife and nature that makes the amazon so great. In the recent years it has been popping up more and more videos and articles about how we are destroying this wonderful place more and more each day. And didn’t we learn in school that we need the trees and the plants for oxygen, the thing that all animals and humans need to survive?

Amazon watch is a organisation  that is working hard together with the people that live in the amazon to stop this.

SIGN THE PETITION TO KEEP THE OIL IN THE GROUND IN THE AMAZON: http://amazonwatch.org/take-action/ke…

Humanity’s survival depends on not burning two-thirds of our global oil reserves, so we must act now by limiting fossil fuel extraction. The highly bio diverse Amazon basin is a keystone area in combating climate change because it regulates our planet’s health and drives global weather patterns. Preserving regions most critical for our survival—from the Amazon to the Arctic—is the solution to avoiding climate chaos. That’s why we are globally calling to KEEP THE OIL IN THE GROUND, starting with the Amazon.

Please, act today and share this video with everyone you know who likes to breathe air.

Short documentary: Forest Man

Documentary: Forest Man

We came across this truly amazing story about the forest man and we hade to tell our readers and viewer’s. It is not hard to change our way of living, all it takes is a small change and we are on our way to a better future.

Since the 1970’s Majuli islander Jadav Payeng has been planting trees in order to save his island. To date he has single handedly planted a forest larger than Central Park NYC. His forest has transformed what was once a barren wasteland, into a lush oasis. 

Humble yet passionate and philosophical about his work. Payeng takes us on a journey into his incredible forest.
