Drew Dellinger, founder of Poets for Global Justice (http://drewdellinger.org), studied cosmology and ecological thought with Thomas Berry who coined the term New Story. Filmed at the New Story Summit: Inspiring Pathways for our Planetary Future, Drew shares his journey toward understanding the power of story as it relates to social justice, ecology, cosmology, education, and activism.
The new story is our new understanding of the universe and the unfolding of the planet Earth. Our new story is an amazing opportunity for the Western tradition to reconnect to the sense of interdependence and interconnectedness that the indigenous peoples have always maintained in their wisdom traditions. We need to build a movement that connects ecology, social justice, and cosmology, using the power of dream, the power of story, the power of art, and the power of action.
