Sentient

We are currently in the midst of an ecological crisis on a scale of which we have never seen. One in which the choices we make over the next few decades will determine the fate of our species, and have the power to dramatically affect all life on Earth. One of the biggest factors underlying this crisis is a feature of our common worldview; that we are separate from each other, and from the larger systems that sustain life on this planet as a whole. By illustrating our interconnectedness and offering practical solutions, Sentient shows us that in fact it is the opposite; that we need each other now more than ever, and that each of us are a vital part of the ultimate solution.
