The Anthropocene Project is proud to bring a unique bilingual education program to teachers across Canada FOR FREE, in partnership with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society (RCGS).
The Anthropocene Education Program (AEP) includes incredible 360 VR films; educational short films, online interactive gigapixel photographs, AR experiences, and a large-scale high-resolution Giant Floor Mural depicting one of Edward Burtynsky’s photographs with related film extensions (part of a travelling school kit), and brand new content focused on the theme of “Plastics in the Anthropocene”. These assets augment specific teacher guides and lesson plans written by the qualified educators from Can Geo Education and linked to the Canadian National Learning Framework for grades 4-12 Geography, or primaire 4 to secondaire 5 in Quebec.
The program leverages the stunning audiovisual resources of The Anthropocene Project, and the proven expertise and distribution networks of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society to create a powerful and change-provoking experiential understanding of human impact on the planet for students in classrooms from coast to coast, ages 9 – 18. The program will reach more than 23,000 classroom teachers from across the country through the RCGS’s educational arm, Canadian Geographic (Can Geo) Education. Read more
