Our People, Our Climate: Visualizing Climate Change Through Hemispheric Dialogue

Project: Internal Grant

Project Details

Description

This project will create a curriculum for a synchronous 8-week online course on the visualization of climate change in Arctic and tropical locations, namely Canada (Nunavut), Honduras, Mexico and Colombia. The program will engage high-school students and young adults in learning about two interrelated components: a) climate change evidence and visualization, using and contributing to the Climate Visuals framework, and b) professional photography/videography. Students will learn about existing evidence for climate change in different biomes across the globe, use the key principles of visualizing climate change, and practice how to use photography and documentary filmmaking to collect evidence of climate change in their communities, ultimately creating professional photography and short 3-minute documentary films (SDG#12, #13 and #17).
