Due January 30th, 2017 - Our country is divided and even though technology has connected us more than ever before, we've never been more disconnected. We talk more than we listen. And when we listen, it’s only enough to quickly react or respond, and not to truly understand one another.
Undebating is working together, listening and using communication techniques to help untangle interests, beliefs, and facts, with the intention of reaching agreeable solutions.
Undebating isn’t about one side winning, or even agreeing on everything. It’s about understanding that we have more in common than we think.
We listen to the other side.
We suspend our assumptions.
We get our facts straight.
We start a productive dialogue.
And then TOGETHER --- we create real solutions.
Create a video 3 minutes or under that illustrates an "Undebate" solution to the problems our society faces today.
Four suggestions for the type of videos Undebate.us wants to see:
1. In a video, share a personal story where finding solutions solved your problem or a problem in your community -- instead of simply debating.
2. Build a story around Undebate.us and its movement. Imagine how it could change your life and the world.
3. Create a film using the script provided by Undebate.us. You can either record it as VO, use it as text on screen or have people say it on camera. It's up to you. The script can be downloaded at the link below.
4. Is it possible there's a bit of “right” in everyone? Why are you ‘right’ and everyone who disagrees with you?
$25 per video.
