A Small Good Thing asks the question: “What does it take to live a good life: a life of purpose, happiness and meaning?” The film follows the stories of six people who are finding happiness in their lives and work by creating closer connections within their community. While A Small Good Thing focuses largely on the importance of sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship, the film also offers a holistic approach to the big questions of health, happiness, and success.

  • Positive psychologist and founder of the Greater Good Science Center, Dacher Keltner, PH.D explores the roles of compassion and community in living a meaningful life

  • Climate change expert, Bill McKibben (350.org) explains the important links between food, the environment, and the wellbeing of our global community

  • Stephen Cope, Director of Kripalu’s Institute for Extraordinary Living, explains the way that yoga and mindful practices affect our feelings of happiness

  • Community organizer and arts educator, Shirley Edgerton addresses the incredible importance of empowering youth from an early age


By drawing connections between happiness and a variety of fields, A Small Good Thing suggests that the small ways we can build a better world are both within the scope of our personal passions and dependent on our relationships with our larger communities.
