Getting the Picture Achieves Global Impact
One year ago, Earth Vision Institute launched our free online climate education resource Getting The Picture: Our Changing Climate (GTP). In support of our mission to inspire a more balanced relationship with nature, GTP takes users on an adventure complete with beautiful imagery, video clips from our Emmy-award winning film Chasing Ice, and easy-to-understand science. Please share this free, highly relevant resource with family, friends, colleagues, and educators.
“Getting the Picture is one of ACE’s favorite e-resources for climate education and climate literacy. Unlike anything else out there, it weaves together multimedia, amazing photography, and climate science in an easily accessible and visual format. It’s an excellent and engaging educational resource that inspires youth to make a difference.” – Alliance for Climate Education

Handpicked and rigorously reviewed, the collection features top educational resources that align with the Climate Literacy and Energy Literacy frameworks.
Facebook Teachers Forum
With over 60+ educators and growing, the Getting The Picture Teachers Forum group on Facebook continues to be a unique platform to ask questions and share current events, interesting news, and engaging activities.
You can help us keep this resource current with the latest climate science research and expand our outreach efforts to millions of educators and students across the globe! With your support, we will translate GTP to make it accessible to the 330 million Spanish speakers around the world. Every dollar makes a difference.
Tablets: New partnerships are focused on integrating our online resource into existing educational displays in zoos, aquariums, museums, and state and national parks throughout the U.S. With a simple tablet and educational signage, we will integrate our online resource into existing displays and reach hundreds of thousands more eager learners.
Training: We believe that technology can be used to connect with educators and students through live webinars and professional development training programs. Soon, educators will be able to tune into free, online, training and Q&A sessions with the Earth Vision Institute team and some of our top collaborators.
