As a member of 1% for the Planet, Concurrent Productions has committed to contribute at least 1% of our gross revenue to organizations working to protect and improve our natural environment.
Below are the organizations we’ve pledged to support with our 2020 earnings.
The Trust for Public Land
My deep love for natural spaces goes back to childhood, when my family would go sledding, hiking, and camping in the San Gabriel Mountains. Since then, our protected public lands have brought me immeasurable joy and some of the most meaningful experiences of my life.
The Trust for Public Land works to protect these valuable places so everyone has the opportunity to experience the healing and spiritual benefits of nature.
Western Aspen Alliance
In 2015, I heard about a tree called Pando from a mobile opera performance (Hopscotch) and I got a little obsessed with this creature: a single organism, an aspen grove of 47,000 stems all connected at the root. A clone. A fractal. That’s Pando. It’s one of the oldest and largest living organisms in the world! I tracked down the person most responsible for the care and health of Pando, Paul Rogers, and visited Pando’s home in Fish Lake, Utah in 2018.
I choose to support Western Aspen Alliance because the work is thoughtful and recognizes that the health of human communities, other animal communities, and plant communities are inevitably intertwined. It’s through thoughtful relationships and meaningful civil discourse with all stakeholders that we implement more sustainable solutions for all creatures on our planet. We’re all connected, we’re all in this together.
