They are our own community, support our work, are curious about other cultures, are working to make our lives better and adapting towards a positive future.

“Despite all the options for connecting online through social media, meeting new people of like mind or similar interests in the real world has become nearly impossible. I love the member events, film premieres and partner workshops. ”

Supporting Members

As a local participating member, you share a general interest in our goals and mission. You support our work, are curious about other cultures and how, together, we can make our lives better and take a step towards a positive future. Local members

  • attend film screenings, events and workshops;
  • meet other like minded people;
  • explore different ways of life;
  • practise a new language;
  • enter an open dialogue on conscious living and our planet;
  • try something new; and
  • help preserve their own culture.

“I am doing everything I can in my circles and community. I am a conscious consumer, buy bio products or from farmers markets and recycle my waste. I know, that there are big issues in the world and don’t know how to help. I have a job, a family and very little time.”

Active Members

As an international member, you interact with the community mostly online watching films, reading reviews, sharing on instagram and interacting with other members. You

  • support and follow our work;
  • learn about other places and ways of life;
  • explore ways in which to live better today;
  • enter a dialogue on building a sustainable future;
  • attend international workshops;
  • learn or practise another language; and
  • volunteer for international projects.

I actually tried to change things to the better by being involved in green activism. I gave up because I realised that scaring people with the horrors of the world does not help. I want to be part of a positive change. I want to be part of creating a vision for a liveable future.

Why should I become a member of Real Lives?

You may or may not have international experience or speak more than one language, you like where and how you live, you are interested to get more insight into other people’s lives and cultures.

You do not have time to volunteer or actively participate in our projects, but you would like to see the films we offer and support the activities we are involved in.

You like to occasionally meet with people, who have the same interest in the world and when possible, participate in local activities.
