Calling all parents and teachers! On November 16, 2020, CMRubinWorld announced that Planet Classroom Network, a new addition to their website, will be organizing a six month World’s Fair of Learning on Youtube.
The goal for this virtual fair is to unite young students in learning from different mediums on YouTube, while also focusing on global climate change.
Planet Classroom is dedicated to “supporting youth well-being, unity, inclusivity, and addressing our planet’s global challenges” as told by the CMRubinWorld website.
The program will begin on January 4, 2021 and will be hosted on their YouTube channel. The program will feature over 20 global organizations such as Global Nomads, The Martha Graham Dance Company, and many more. For the full list, visit: https://www.cmrubinworld.com/planet-classroom/
“Research has shown us time and time again that the arts and social impact learning unites people across borders. The COVID-19 pandemic and the ensuing economic and societal consequences have amplified an already existing crisis of youth mental health,” said CMRubinWorld Co-Founder and CEO, Cathy Rubin.
“We came to the conclusion that the world’s youth needed their own Youtube channel where they can work with each other and seek sustainable solutions for their planet.”
The organizations that have partnered up with Planet Classroom will focus on artistic and creative aspects and opportunities. Director Eric Simon talked about his film What To Do About Climate Change?, which will air on the platform.
According to CmRubinWorld, Simon said, “explores avenues available for making progress” and will focus on the passion of protestors and activists battling climate change.
Likewise to Simon’s goals, other topics will be showcased throughout the six month program, including writing, watching documentaries, dance, and a platform for children to tell their stories.
