Educational Resource - Getting The Picture: Our Changing Climate

Earth Vision Trust has launched an education resource titled, "Getting The Picture: Our Changing Climate." This innovative visually rich online multimedia tool is designed to help provide accessible climate education.

Students and educators of all ages can use this free interactive educational tool to gain a fresh perspective on our biggest global challenge: our changing climate. Getting The Picture offers a modern, interdisciplinary approach to teaching climate science.

Especially useful for middle and high school levels, this educational content extends far beyond Earth science and biology and incorporates history, economics, geography, art science and social studies.

Critically acclaimed photographer James Balog and his team bring you the latest in climate science education, featuring unique archives of media, film, photography and first-hand accounts of our changing climate.

Esteemed educators, researchers and photographers from around the world join together to create Getting The Picture with easy to use, chapter-by-chapter lessons combining art, science and adventure.

Compelling animations, time-lapse and science videos, photographs, field expedition stories and special clips from the Academy Award® and Emmy® nominated documentary film Chasing Ice are just a few of the highlights!
