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.
