The pupils highlighted this feature with newspaper archives showing a digital drawing of the earth burning.

The environment Is in You

“If we are to preserve culture, we must continue to create it” – Johan Huizinga

And it is thanks to technology that we have the possibility to preserve culture, to keep it intact, to escape the wear and tear of time, but above all, we have the possibility to make it accessible to everyone; without limits.

But what is culture, if not everything around us? Indistinctly?
Picture by Romina Arredondo

And how can we preserve it if not by making new generations aware of what is happening, around us? Then the destruction, the fragility, the continuous struggle for survival of our planet is also culture. Climate change and all its dramatic consequences is culture.

This is what the participants of ‘The Environment Is in You’, a contest for students created and promoted by the Global Oneness Project platform, a digital archive of stories, sought to represent.

Indeed, the Global Oneness Project is a free multimedia platform for educators and students. It Is a multidisciplinary library of multimedia stories comprising award-winning films, photos and essays. The aim of the project is to use stories as a pedagogical tool and bring the world’s cultures alive in the classroom.

As explained on their website, the contest invited the students to take a photograph or create an original illustration that documents the fragility, hope, and future of our planet due to climate change.

Many students linked their pictures to the following statement by the writer and environmental activist Wendell Berry: “The environment is in you, it’s passing through you, you’re breathing it in and out, you and every other creature.”
