Student Multimedia Project on the Meaning of Global Citizenship
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. How does the Earthrise photograph challenge us to consider our relationship to Earth and provide a context for what it means to be a global citizen? Students’ photographs can be showcased in the classroom, school, community, on social media with #RememberEarth, or on the Global Oneness Project website. The aim is to generate an online collection of student work capturing places around the world from students’ perspectives, documenting their relationship to the planet. Global Oneness Project’s website provides free access to the film Earthrise, as well as the Earthrise photograph, four prompts to get students started, and a gallery showcasing student work.
The US National Parks are the embodiment of a concept emerging from 19th-century democratic ideas to preserve the magnificent natural wonders of the land, making them available in perpetuity. Studying the national parks helps to illuminate these ideas and illustrate dimensions of US politics, economics, and society that resonate today.
National Geographic Education has launched a new grant program called the Learning Emergency Fund, which will award at least 50 grants to teachers to adapt or develop remote-friendly curriculum resources that use science, social studies, or geography to teach about pandemics, including COVID-19, or about social or environmental justice.
