Description:

Elluminate launches second online classroom series on environmental issues with schools in Canada, Mozambique and Brazil to help combat global warming. This video showcases highlights from the series. Participants included two Canadian schools ? Langevin Science School from Calgary and Lakefield College School based in Ontario ? three schools from remote parts of Brazil, and one school from Mozambique. The project objective was for students to collaborate and recommend one activity each school could implement in 2007 that would help combat climate change in their local areas. "Global warming discussion forums are common these days, but what usually lacks is the translation of dialogue into action," said Stace Wills, director of corporate development for Elluminate. "Each Fire and Ice school has developed a plan that is executable and realistically achievable in their local region. And since all collaborative sessions are held online, they've already effectively reduced the CO2 emissions that would have been caused by flights to each respective area." "This project was just a small sample of what can be achieved by the world when our youth works together," said Tarsila Sangiorgi Rosenfeld, project coordinator and spokesperson from the University of São Paulo's School of the Future. "I wish everyone would have the same opportunity to experience this type of initiative. Next year, all of us can gather again to see the difference we've made to combat global warming and create a better world. I really believe that these children's efforts are making a difference."
