2015 Earth Day Global Conversation

About this class

Participants in the 2015 Global Conversation, an event organized by Minneapolis Community and Technical College, can join this class to continue to discuss issues broached on Earth Day 2015. 

Videos of the days conversations will be shared here and students who participated in the conversation will be able to have conversations around environmental issues while other students from within the newsactivist network who may not have attended the conversations can also share in the conversation. 

There are many challenges that we face in our 21st century if we want to have a sustainable world –a more peaceful and justice world for ourselves and future generations all across the world.   How we think about and value and treat our Earth -our Environment -is a crucial component for addressing all the major challenges we currently face both locally and worldwide.   At the heart of all major global challenges  (food, water, air, energy, resources,  poverty…..) is the environment and the changes now upon us all  from Climate Change.   No one country alone can “save” our planet from our “modern” world.  Global Education and Global Communication & Relationships are essential.   The key to a better world needs countries to come together and work together to address Environment and Climate Change issues.   This can happen only if the peoples from different cultures and walks of life come together as global citizens who see a common interest.   We must do this within our own country as well as with peoples in other countries of the world.  As college educators at MCTC we want to offer our students more opportunities to meet and learn from students who live outside of the U.S. --in other countries and regions of our planet.   

The MCTC Earth Day Global Conversations Program is our first attempt to use our technology to give our students opportunities to meet and converse with students outside of the U.S.

It's real and yes, Alyson was so happy for what I did. I was also scared of direction but I didn't want to lose her so I did what I did.

I don't know if this is a real story, but if it is I don't know how you did it. When I was younger I was such afraid of the direction. I went into their office one time and I was petrified because I was so scare of them. I also hope that Alyson was grateful for what you did for her. Anyway, you are a courageous person because I am not sure that I would have done it.

It's a really good story, I like the way you wrote it. Your story has many details ; we are able to picture the story in our head. Your story reminds me when I was younger. I have two older brothers and I always wanted to impress them. I did things just to prove them that I was able to do it even though I knew it wasn't always good.

I'm surprised that John managed to get away without having to meet the police because breaking a window can be a crime of destruction of property. Maybe his girlfriend didn't call the police because she felt a bit guilty of cheating.

It's not that bad that you took the burger in my opinion because it reminds me of one time where my mother ordered a pizza with 3 packs of fries at the local restaurant but when she came back home she found out that there was 7 packs of fries instead of 3. She called the restaurant right away but they told her to keep them because of some kind of laws or hygienic rules.

That man must have been really mad to push a young teen on the ground. I'm sure shouting would have been enough to scare a boy.

I really enjoyed reading your essay. i really like Ghibli from I were child, so your essay was very interesting. And I was surprised at the year of Studio Ghibli established. I thought it has a long history, but very young studio. I did not care what is the message they want to tell us through their movie, but after reading your essay, I want to know the meaning their movie has. Thanks to your essay, I can enjoy Ghibli's movie more and more.
