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.

In honor of Earth Week, join Emergence Magazine on Sunday, April 18th from 6-7pm PST for a special screening of the Emmy-nominated film Earthrise, followed by a conversation with director Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee. Earthrise tells the story of the first image of the Earth from space, captured in 1968. Told solely by the Apollo 8 astronauts, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. Registration is required and donations to our local co-sponsors at the Dance Palace (Point Reyes Station, CA) are encouraged.
Join us on Thursday, April 29th at 3pm PST for a webinar with our partner Composer. Along with organizations High Resolves, Voiceless, and World Savvy, we will share ways to empower students to foster environmental citizenship with curriculum design ideas and inspiring resources.
