Green blog: Overview from Planetary Collective
In this thought-provoking short made by Planetary Collective, astronauts provide their own unique cosmic perspective on the uncertainty of the Earth’s future.
The root of the environmental and social crises facing humanity today is the misperception that we are separate – from each other, the planet, and the cosmos as a whole. The Overview Effect, now a recognised astronomical term, highlights the fragility of our Earth when seen from space, and the awareness of the unity and oneness of all life upon it experienced by those lucky enough to see it. Watch the film and hear more about the Overview Effect.
Planetary Collective is a group of filmmakers, visual media creatives and thinkers who work with cosmologists, ecologists and philosophers to explore some of the big questions facing our planet at this time.
