Climate Change Video Guide

Climate Change Video Guide | Globalisation and interdependence | Scoop.it
An in-depth, multimedia look at climate change, its global impact, and efforts to combat it.

 

This guide on climate change from the Council on Foreign Relations (independent think tank) covers many of the geopolitical, economic and environmental issues that confront the Earth as global temperatures rise.  Rather than produce a full length feature film, they have organized the this as an interactive video, allowing the user to get short (a couple of minutes) answer to specific questions about the science, foreign policy or economic ramifications of adapting to climate change.

Global Concerns Classroom: Empowering Youth to take Global Action

Global Concerns Classroom:          Empowering Youth to take Global Action | Globalisation and interdependence | Scoop.it

For as much as geographic education "discusses" global issues and problems, we geography teachers often don't demonstrate how to make a different.   This site helps teachers show students how to make use of their education.

 

"I can't help everyone everywhere, but I can help someone somewhere."  That's the starting point for global awareness.

I had always heard the view of children learning more at younger ages. An excellent idea to broaden the children's cultural views and backgrounds.
