We live in a world where an epidemic in Mexico affects lives in Europe, air pollution in China disturbs crops in Bangladesh, and financial disaster in the U.S. impacts economic growth everywhere. Given this high level of interdependence, isn't it more important than ever to be aware of the effect of our actions on the rest of the planet? Filmmaker Jian Yi and his team discussed this question with people from a variety of backgrounds on five different continents. The respondents' thoughts, offered in this documentary, represent the views of businesspeople and artists, students and theologians, as well as a Nobel laureate, a UN economist, and an Internet guru. Inspired by the work of Hakan Altinay (Global Civics: Responsibilities and Rights in an Interdependent World), the film calls for an increased sense of social responsibility. With Wikipedia cofounder Jimmy Wales, economist Kemal Dervis, and others. (Portions with English subtitles, 56 minutes) A streaming videorecording.
