Their successes and failures speak to one of the biggest questions of our time: will the U.S. actually be able to build a clean energy economy?

Have you ever heard of the Butterfly Effect?

The butterfly effect is a theory that everything matters – a minute localized change or single occurrence, no matter how small, can make a difference and have large effects elsewhere – even changing the course of the universe forever. Our stories reveal larger patterns or metanarratives about our big challenges, and opportunities, in a world of accelerating change. These stories call us to a high-stakes planetary adventure – an adaptive learning journey that compels us to ask questions we’ve never asked or to take action we’ve never dreamed or dared.

Our part in accelerating awareness and change:
Films for the Planet provides the streaming of transformational media to create a butterfly effect around our planet. Our collection of films – available on a single platform – makes it easy to find the stories to help inform more people about our most critical issues. It’s by increasing awareness about these issues and engaging diverse audiences that we hope to generate the conversations and collective actions among communities worldwide. One film at a time, we can align our consciousness and discover real-world solutions to make our world a better place.
