Welcome to the Global Oneness Project. We believe that stories play a powerful role in education. Founded in 2006, as an initiative of Kalliopeia Foundation, we are committed to the exploration of cultural, environmental, and social issues. We house a rich library of free multimedia stories comprised of our award-winning films, photo essays, and articles, accompanied by companion curriculum for teachers.
Our curriculum, available in both English and Spanish, is aligned to National and Common Core Standards and contains an interdisciplinary approach to learning. We aim to connect, through stories, the local human experience to global meta-level issues, such as climate change, water scarcity, food insecurity, poverty, endangered cultures, migration, and sustainability. Through featuring individuals and communities impacted by these issues, our stories and lessons provide opportunities to examine universal themes that emphasize our common humanity—identity, diversity, hope, resilience, imagination, adversity, empathy, love, and responsibility. Our lessons facilitate the development of students' critical thinking, inquiry, empathy, and listening skills.
Each week, we release a new lesson plan. All of our content and resources are available for free with no ads or subscriptions.
The Global Oneness Project's films and lessons have been featured on National Geographic, PBS, The Atlantic, The New York Times, The New Yorker, TED Ed, and the Smithsonian, among others. Our educational resources are being used in diverse settings, from public to independent schools, nationally and globally.
