DWI TRANSFORMATIONAL MEDIA
The Deep Water Initiative aims to use media as a platform for the production and distribution of educational awareness materials, which explore the relationship between humans and the natural world.
INSTITUTIONAL FILM SERIES SCREENINGS
The Deep Water Initiative designs and hosts numerous film series screenings with a variety of educational based institutions, including universities, environmental fellowships/programs, religious and spiritual institutions, and local film forums. We believe that film can and should serve as a dynamic educational tool as well as a powerful agent of change. We support the screening of high-quality film productions that address the complexity of ecological sustainability within a diversity of local communities and a diversity of religious and spiritual traditions existing within a post-modern world.
Visit our Religion and Ecology Film Screenings page for more information.
ACADEMIC & COMMUNITY PANELS
In 2020 the Deep Water Initiative began designing and facilitating academic and community-based panels and conferences with our institutional partners. Recent panels include A Renewal of Genesis 1 and Decolonizing Research, Indigenous Research Methodologies in Western Academic Institutions. Conferences include Alternative Research Methodologies in Western Academic Institutions. To view past panels, visit our YouTube page.

RELIGION & ECOLOGY PODCAST
The Religion and Ecology Podcast is one component of the larger Transformational Media Program. The goal of the podcast is to engage with thought-leaders in the field of Religion and Ecology (POD), provide an alternative medium for community-based education (AE), and to function as a platform for creative expression through original music and soundscape recordings (MUS). Our collective podcast interviews, audio essay's and original music are hosted on this platform.
