Waterbear is the new free streaming platform for the curious and conscious mind. Founded by non-other than Ellen Widemuth—producer of in My Octopus teacher—the storytelling streaming service provides award-winning films and documentaries on our natural world, on conservation and on our relationship with the planet.
The stories focus on real people and powerful storytelling instead of scientists and facts. Windemuth dubs this style “emotional ecology” that is very prominent in the movie My Octopus Teacher, a feature that is very effective in inspiring individual change and action.
Which is why WaterBear is not only a streaming platform, but also a community where one can connect with over 100 partner NGOs directly on the platform. WaterBear directs you to volunteer, donate, travel, or follow. Fostering actionism as well as knowledge.
“A community that is action-oriented, rather than just leaning back and watching content.”
