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 aim to plant seeds of empathy, resilience, and a sacred relationship to our planet. Using stories as a pedagogical tool for growing minds, we bring the world’s cultures alive in the classroom. Committed to the exploration of cultural, environmental, and social issues, we offer a rich library of multimedia stories comprised of award-winning films, photo essays, and essays. Companion curriculum and discussion guides are also available.
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, the stories and lessons provide opportunities to examine universal themes which include the following: identity, diversity, hope, resilience, imagination, adversity, empathy, love, and responsibility, and our common humanity. Our lessons facilitate the development of students' critical thinking, inquiry, empathy, and listening skills and contain an interdisciplinary approach to learning. The curriculum resources are available in both English and Spanish and are aligned to National and Common Core Standards.
All of our 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.
We are located on the unceded ancestral lands of the Coast Miwok people of present-day Marin County.
