"Visually and factually stunning..."
- Alan Solomonow, American Friends Service Committee
Are you concerned about the world your
children will live in, about the millions of people suffering today
and about the future of the planet? Have you ever
wondered where you could find a single source for getting the REAL
PICTURE about what's happening to the world and raise this awareness in others?Then you've come to the right place.
In the summer of 2005 and 2006 the Global Education Project made
several public presentations in British Columbia to hundreds of
concerned people. Impactful and thought provoking, this same experience
is now available to anyone who can click their way through Power Point.
All of the charts, maps and text from the Earth wall chart and
website have been collated into a carefully sequenced slide show.
of the 110 slides are also included as individual PDF's that can be
passed around or emailed and have been linked to an index that will
help you find each one either by sequence or topic; a great way to
share information or develop curriculum or conference materials.
"Why a Presentation?"
It is clear to us that many, many people are searching for a simple and
reliable way to educate themselves about what is actually happening to
the world, without political spin or vague conclusions. That's why we
put up this web site
with the results of years of research on it, completely free, in the
most accessible format we could come up with - graphs and maps where
one can SEE the state of the world. The web site is visited by over
100,000 people like you each year.
But the internet has limitations.
It is usually a solitary
experience with little opportunity for dialogue or interaction. The
synergy that comes from many people coming together and reaching a
collective awareness has power and can be the start of great change.
Paul Hawken describes what he witnessed after years of giving lectures on the environment:
"What does meet the eye is compelling: ..... ordinary and
not-so-ordinary people willing to confront despair, power, and
incalculable odds in order to restore some semblance of grace, justice,
and beauty to this world."
That's why we put together these resources. Because the facts need to be seen.
People are empowered by the truth.
Some of what you'll see in the
The key information on the world's energy supply -- who has it, who needs it, and approximately how long it's going to last
How to dispel any doubt about the truth of climate change with one simple chart
The shocking truth about changes in the distribution of wealth in the US and around the globe during the last 20 years
The condition of the world's forests, fisheries and soil, laid out in simple bar graphs and maps.
See It With Your Eyes.
Humans are suited to understand things visually, not just mentally
Research has shown that people learn many times faster if they can SEE
what they're learning, rather than just thinking about it.
With the Earth Presentation, along with the Wall Chart, the data is all there in a graphic
format - Easy to see, easy to understand, and pretty.
(We know the state of the world isn't pretty, but we've been amazed at
how many people have exclaimed how beautiful the charts and maps are.
-- Alan Solomonow of the AFSC called it "visually stunning,"
and in comments about our previous wall chart on the Middle East
included words like "magnificent" and "beautifully produced".
"...a comprehensive information source for anyone who cares about the world that our children will inherit from us."
- Maria Pop, Rodale Institute
"Just the Facts"
There's nothing like a political agenda to make good information hard
to swallow. With this in mind, the Earth Presentation includes only well referenced, non-partisan data, giving you a reliable foundation for thorough education on the issues that matter most
Each map, graph and chart is accompanied with a source reference, most
of which are accessible online.
We didn't just want to find the most important information about the
planet. We also had to find information that was reliable enough that
nobody could contest it.
