An Interview with Adam Collett, Project Manager of Unity Earth Lift Off
“We are all one with the same One, each of us totally unique just like everybody else.” — Swami Beyondananda
It’s fitting that in 2019, fifty years after Woodstock a new festival has emerged to bring together the “imaginal cells” of a new generation, at a time when humankind (without the “kindness”) sits atop the endangered — and endangering species list.
And this time — unlike Woodstock — there is a worldwide movement, an “upwising” if you will, seeking to bring together awakening youth and indigenous people to bring unity out of diversity. Instead of focusing on the “identity” issues that tend to keep us separate, this festival focused on working together around the IDENTICAL ISSUES that unite us — clean air, clean water, clean food, and clean government.
The actual event, Unity Earth Lift Off is being billed as a “multigenerational, intercultural, interactive concert in celebration of UN World Interfaith Harmony Week” and will be held on February 2, 2019 at the United Palace in New York City.
How fitting that organizers have picked Ground Hog Day, which in our turbulent times we have renamed Man Hog Day … if we fail to see our own shadow, two more years of darkness.
Seriously and humorously, our guest this week is Adam Collett, an Australian native who is the project manager for Unity Earth Lift Off, and who shares a compelling and much-needed vision to unite indigenous elders and the y0ung people who will inherit this world to create a “movement of movements” to unify and mobilize those who are ready for a partnership (as opposed to a dominator) civilization.
Adam is an event producer, cultural liaison and social impact designer from Byron Bay, Australia. Inspired by his mother’s stories from the 1969 Woodstock Festival, Adam has been on a lifelong pursuit to inspire change through transformative events and community initiatives that have the power to deliver tangible outcomes on a local and global scale. Working closely with First Nations elders, global youth leaders, and earth regenerators, Adam is dedicated to combining innovative models and technologies with a deep respect for the culture of local people and places. He is the Project Manager for the UNITY EARTH LIFT OFF on February 2nd, 2019 in New York City.
