There are organizations around the world producing films, interviews, and lectures addressing sustainability-related topics and doing it on a regular basis.
We created a Special Collections section to draw your attention to these organizations and the programs we have found particularly educational and inspirational.
EarthSayers.tv is happy to partner with select companies and events for mutual promotion and further development of special collections.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for recommendations as to champions, big challenges, events and/or places you want to see called out on our site.

The artist, Chris Jordan's work, as one example, addresses the unconscious behaviors that add up to catastrophic consequences which no one intended. He explores the phenomenon of American consumerism.
Bill Moyers has followed the stories of two Milwaukee families since 1991. Like thousands of others, they were caught in the powerful undertow of a merciless economy and a changing city, constantly faced with devastating challenges and difficult choices. Bill revisits his reports on these families, and also explores the human price of inequality with journalists Barbara Miner and Barbara Garson.
