You can probably see evidence of this everywhere in your life, from where your food is grown to where your clothes are made to the way you live and work.. But being connected means that, for better or for worse, how we choose to act, or to not act has profound implications.. How can one person make sense of all of this?.. Get informed!.. We need to think critically about globalization that is, about our relationships as individuals, communities and entire nations with other citizens and nations in the world.. We do that by asking questions, and by looking at things with a critical eye.. We ask, how is this running shoe I'm  ...   it is doing? Do I agree with its aims? How is my government being accountable to me?.. It means exploring our own assumptions about our personal needs and desires, and reflecting on the impacts of our energy use and consumption patterns on others..

For close to three decades, Pacific Peoples Partnership has been helping Canadians and Pacific islanders to make these connections by promoting thought and action on these and other issues..
