In an effort to transcend isolation and ignorance, Culture Unplugged focuses on producing and promoting films that are socially sensitive and culturally conscious. Their mission is to nurture and spread enlightening films, fostering a strong sense of community on a local and global scale.

The Fruit of Our Labor

The Fruit of Our Labor is a collection of 10 short documentary films made by 10 Afghans during a training conducted by Community Supported Film in the fall of 2010. These character-driven shorts highlight the complex daily realities of contemporary Afghanistan, while also showing the agency and capacity of Afghans to solve their own problems. The films bring a much-needed local perspective to the debate about the immediate and long-term future of Afghanistan.

ON DEVELOPMENT | Protecting 30% of Earth’s surface for nature means thinking about connections near and far, The Conversation

Governments, scientists and conservation groups are working to protect 30% of Earth’s land and water for nature by 2030. Scientists say that protecting 30% of Earth’s surface will help species and ecosystems recover from the stresses that are depleting them. It also will conserve valuable services that nature provides to humans, such as buffering coasts from storms and filtering drinking water. Protecting forests and grasslands can help slow climate change by promoting carbon storage in soil and plants.
