Films for Action

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Some NEMO permaculture advocates went down to the First Annual Midwest Permaculture Convergence in Lawrence, KS, this weekend and brought back info for an amazing resource: Films for Action.

If you’re in the Lawrence area they have a lending library, and for everywhere else they do all the legwork and organization for finding incredible, free, online informational videos related to social justice and environmentalism.  There are clips, short films, full length documentaries: any amount of time you have there’s a video for you.

Here’s their subject list:

9/11
activism
animal rights
big ideas
big media
business
cities
climate change
community
consumerism
corporations
culture
drug prohibition
education
elections & democracy
empire
energy
food
globalization

health
human rights
impeachment
indigenous issues
indy media

media literacy
money & economics
peak oil
permaculture
philosophy
police state
politics
relocalization
social issues
solutions
sustainability
technology & design
terrorism?
the big picture
vision
war & peace

Pick a topic, watch some videos, pass the word on, and take action towards what you believe in!

And if you get any ideas for a project to happen in NEMO, let us know, because we’d love to help.
