Stories and lessons for growing minds

We are a free multimedia platform for educators and students. Through our immersive storytelling and curricula, we explore the deeper issues facing humanity. Use our award-winning films, photo essays, and essays to learn about social, cultural, and environmental issues from people and communities worldwide. For grades 3-12, our stories and lessons encourage students to broaden their perspectives and worldviews while fostering inquiry, empathy, resilience, and a sacred relationship to our planet. We aim to bring universal values into the lives of educators and students.

Student Voice

Upcoming Events

A selection of Global Oneness Project films will be premiering throughout the month of February on the newly launched Planet Classroom Network Youtube channel. During its first 6 month season the Network is presenting a global show highlighting powerful stories that are by youth and for youth artists, creators and curators.

Join us for a conversation with Rabbi Dr. Ariel Burger and Dr. Emily Schell to explore the power of student curiosity and its impact on learning. In what ways can we, as educators, parents, and students, embrace inquiry and celebrate questions to support the human spirit? Resources will be shared and an in-depth Q&A will also take place.

Global Oneness Project Executive Director, Cleary Vaughan-Lee, and Middle School Science Teacher, Shelly Grandell, will share tools to engage students with the medium of photography during this free Share My Lesson webinar. How might photography encourage students to become active citizens and witnesses to our rapidly changing world?
