The Clipperton Project is a collaborative, public conversation about environmental and international issues set in Clipperton, an uninhabited French island off the Mexican coast. It brings together artists and scientists from around the world and is a means through which they can merge arts and science to effectively convey and raise public awareness of global environmental and social issues.
Thus, it is both a place and an idea.
Because the nature of the project is an international dialog, students are invited to participate in the conversation.
Here is the original post detailing our partnership and the contest they are holding, and below is their third blog installment describing the progress of The Clipperton Project. Enjoy!
This month The Clipperton Project is extremely excited to finally launch the ‘Your Ideas, Our Future’ (YIOF) creative initiative with Go!Animate and Prezi!
YIOF encourages young people to get creative with important messages about protecting our environment – producing a fun and unique Go!Animate animation, or (for older students) getting to grips with tough topics using new ‘zoom’ technology via Prezi presentations.
Your presentation can be produced individually or in a team and the shortlisted finalists will be showcased on our website, before a panel of young judges will determine a winner. The winner will get their presentation permanently displayed on the TCP website, a bag of TCP goodies, and see their presentation actually used in our educational programmes to teach other young people all around the world!
Find out more about this initiative – and how you can take part – on this webpage: http://www.clippertonproject.com/your-ideas-our-future/
