“I used to think that the top environmental problems were loss of biodiversity, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address those problems. But I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy … and to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation. We scientists don’t know how to do that.” [Environmental lawyer, Gus Speth]

The Genuine Growth program applies Gus Speth’s statement to look deeply into various systems of human behavior. Starting from a macro-perspective, we move with all subjects into the personal realm of habit and mindset. Each film is preceded by a 5’ topic introduction and followed by a 30’ discussion to reflect on problems and brainstorm on out-of-the-box solutions.
Overview Effect
Learn to understand the overview effect, a psychological phenomenon which transformed all 558 astronauts who have seen our planet from space.

“We went to the moon, but we actually discovered Earth."

A team of researchers at the University of Pennsylvania examined the testimonies of hundreds of astronauts who had the opportunity to view the Earth from space. Their analysis uncovered three common feelings:
1. a greater appreciation for Earth's beauty;
2. an increased sense of connection to all other living beings;
3. an unexpected, often overwhelming sense of emotion.
