On the 4th of July, 2011 we posted a request online to participate in a short film about interdependence. Artwork and videos emerged from around the world. Here is what unfolded... When in the course of human events... It becomes increasingly necessary to recognize the fundamental qualities that connect us. Then we must reevaluate the truths we hold to be self evident. That all humans are created equal and all are connected That all humans are created equal and all are connected. That we share the pursuits of life liberty happiness food water shelter safety education justice and hopes for a better future. That our collective knowledge economy technology and environment are fundamentally interdependent. Interdependent. That what will propel us forward as a species is our curiosity our ability to forgive our ability to appreciate our courage and our desire to connect. That these things we share will ultimately help us evolve to our fullest common potential. And whereas we should take our problems seriously we should never take ourselves too seriously Because another thing that connects us is our ability to laugh and our attempt to learn from our mistakes. So that we can learn from the past understand our place in the world and use our collective knowledge to create a better future So perhaps it’s time that we as a species who love to laugh ask questions and connect do something radical and true. For centuries we have declared independence Perhaps it’s now time that we as humans declare our interdependence Interdependence To declare your Interdependence... let it ripple [letitripple.org] let it ripple [letitripple.org] -- declare Let it Ripple: Global Films for Mobile Change

On the 4th of July, 2011 (U.S. Independence Day), we posted a request on the Internet to participate in a global, crowdsourced, short film called A DECLARATION OF INTERDEPENDENCE. We received entries (of people reading the script or submitting artwork) from around the world. By Interdependence Day, 2011, this is what unfolded: a 4-minute global, crowdsourced film that marks the first film of the series LET IT RIPPLE: MOBILE FILMS FOR GLOBAL CHANGE.
