This video asks [What would it look like?] - exploring the concept of a global human identity - a unity in diversity - inspiring global unison in action to do what deeply know and feel to be the right thing for people and planet. People of every culture could throw off their conditioning and programming to distrust and fight each other. We are inspired by the Na'vi culture and we can be similarly inspired by the richness of cultures on Earth - yes, many have disappeared and been destroyed but so many still are with us.
