To help you use Living Downstream, three guides are being produced:
Living Downstream ~ In the Community (now available)
Living Downstream ~ In the Classroom (available Fall 2012)
Living Downstream ~ At Home (release date TBA)
Individuals and groups across North America are using Living Downstream as an educational and outreach tool. They are using the film to raise public awareness about the links between environmental contamination and cancer incidence. They are using it to inspire critical thinking among students. They are using it to inspire deeper environmental engagement and activism.
To help you make full use of Living Downstream in your life and work, we have produced a collection of guides. The guides are designed to be used in tandem with the film. They will inspire creative applications of the film and save you time and resources. They are specific enough to lead you step-by-step but flexible enough to encourage individuality, needs-based modifications, and out-of-the-box thinking.
