Program Goals

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.
