As students continue to be challenged by the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic, Global Oneness Project asked them how they might bear witness and listen to the living world in new ways.

Explore the winners and finalists from the Global Oneness Project’s most recent student photography and illustration contest. The contest encouraged students to reflect on the spirit of reciprocity and kinship with the living world. Inspired by the writing of Robin Wall Kimmerer, member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, students responded to her question: “How, in our modern world, can we find our way to understand the earth as a gift again, to make our relations with the world sacred again?”
