We Are All Connected (2) (640x480)

By Green Dude Aaron Ableman

As a young person facing the challenges of our world today, it’s sometimes difficult to imagine how connected I am to making a difference on any large scale.

But just the other day, as I had been thinking about how tough it is to connect with those “in power” (i.e., elected officials, celebrities, etc.) to tell them of the trials or triumphs in my community, something amazing happened. The Mayor of Oakland showed up on my doorstep with a precinct “random visit request” to take a poll in the neighborhood that I reside in! After having tea for almost an hour, the mayor became aware of the work I do as a youth leader and social entrepreneur inspiring kids and families around the world to find their creative voice and make a difference in the world!

As Marriane Williamson said, “Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us.”

Listen to my Green Dude podcast segment, then read on for more about the We Are All Connected global dance party movement. Then read on to learn more about it and how you can get involved.

We all must truly find the voice within us that says, we are all gifted with something to give the world!

For this reason, and so much more, I am honored to share my message of global oneness and connectedness with each and every one you. 

As one youth ambassador in the campaign, Avalon Theisen, said…

“The more we are aware of our connectedness, the better we’ll treat ourselves, each other and the planet!”

This is why my company—alongside 50 organizations and influencers—have come together to launch the “We Are All Connected” campaign: to inspire young people across the planet to proclaim their connectedness by dancing and singing in public!
 

Each act of connection will be documented through video and uploaded in a beautiful montage series called #weareallconnected. So, for all of you out there, let’s join Avalon and kids from every continent in this global dance party to transform our future. The campaign started on Independence Day (July 4th) 2014 and continues on to assert our INTERdependence and INTERconnectedness!

A Fierce Green Fire

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
