Inner Growth & Cultural Transformation
The complex social and ecological crises of our time show us more and more clearly the necessity of a profound cultural transformation. How can we explore ways into a future worth living? How can we develop a new cultural story? How can we, as humanity, use this essential crisis to develop ourselves both individually and as a society? How are these two developments interconnected?
In order to find answers to these questions, the documentary portrays inspiring people who bring new ways of thinking and doing to life. The film is about people who are actively involved in shaping a cultural transformation characterized by self-reflexion, humanity and sustainable thinking. The focus lies on the question: How is inner growth—especially by means of deceleration, mindfulness and more conscious experience—related to cultural and societal change?
