O Ri Duniya
The world we live in
O Ri Duniya, in collaboration with Empathy Connects, intends to to create a shared journey, a combination of reflections and understanding some critical environmental issues using films as a tool and paying attention to the world within and connecting it to the world outside.
We're driven towards
Finding connections between our actions and thoughts at an individual level and a species level.
Raising important questions at both the personal and systemic level, like:
"Did someone die in the process of getting me a cup of coffee?"or "Where does my food and water come from?"
Understanding our share of responsibility and steps we can take to change our current way of unsustainable being.
Creating a community of concerned and informed people who are willing to work with the issues at hand.

"I was always shying away from conversations regarding societal and environmental issues, assuming it wouldn’t have any impact on others if they don’t figure it out themselves. This program helped me change that attitude."
