SYNOPSIS

Together We Grow is a 40-minute documentary telling the story of Common Unity.

Introducing a thriving hub helping to build resilience into its local community by growing, sewing, repairing, sharing – you name it, Common Unity is doing it!

Too many of our communities, here and around the world, are facing housing crises, food insecurity, social isolation, and more. In addition, the multiple impacts of the Covid pandemic and climate change are current and ongoing. How can we most effectively confront these challenges, and help our communities thrive in an economic system that leaves many feeling trapped in poverty?

Founder Julia Milne and her team have created a completely replicable model for developing strong, connected, resilient communities – a model that could be put in place across thousands of communities in Aotearoa and millions of communities across the world. They’ve proven it can be done, this film was made to help them share the story!

“This beautiful film is the perfect antidote to the cynical narrative that says people are inherently selfish. Actually, we are all capable of coming together, creating resilient communities, caring for each other, embracing the limits that the climate emergency imposes and seeing them as the opportunity to reimagine everything. This film will melt your heart. Guaranteed.”

Rob Hopkins, author; co-founder Transition Network

“Common Unity’s approach to giving to the community is all about the alongside … We didn’t want to parachute any services in from other places, this is simply something that we create for ourselves, with one another, responding to what it is that we see in this community.”
