 • Nurture longterm, sustainable, and mutually beneficial collaborative partnerships with schools, communities, and innovators around the world.

• Continually innovate multimedia storytelling as a platform for interdisciplinary cross-cultural learning, ethical representation, and environmental consciousness-raising.
