In early 2020 (pre-COVID-19) we arranged a number of screenings in mining-affected communities across Canada. In response to the pandemic we’ve changed our plans to present virtual screenings with post-screening discussions via Zoom.
SPECIAL EVENT VIRTUAL SCREENINGS
Event: Understanding and Teaching Global Mining Issues
Virtual Film Screening, Panel Discussion, and Launch of Educator’s Guide
When: April 21st, 2021 – 7:30 PM- 9:30 PM ET / 4:30 PM- 6:30 P PT
Calling all Educators! Don’t miss this upcoming Free Screening and Panel Discussion for Earth Week featuring The Shadow of Gold documentary film hosted in partnership with MiningWatch Canada and Green Teacher. If you are an educator in need of resources to teach students about mining issues worldwide, we will be giving a preview of our new 36-page film Educator’s Guide at the Q&A following the film screening. The film will be available to watch 72 hours in advance to provide ample time for people to view it in time for our Zoom panel discussion on April 21st, 2021.
