In 1968 three astronauts embarked on the Apollo 8 mission and witnessed Earth as it had never been seen before. The firstcolor photograph taken beyond Earth’s orbit was later titled Earthrise. An award-winning film from Global Oneness Project documents the story of this photograph. How does the Earthrise photograph provide a context for what it means to be a global citizen?
Global Oneness Project is sponsoring a student photography project inspired by the film Earthrise by Emmanuel Vaughan-Lee. “Document Your Place on the Planet” challenges students to take one photograph that captures their relationship and place on Earth.
