Film Screening of "Schooling the World" (4/17/15)
Posted: 03/18/2015 | Student Affairs
There will be a film screening of "Schooling the World" on Friday, April 17 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM at the TDRC,Pollak Library North 203. This film screening will be presented by Nawang Phutsog.
According to the synopsis from Press Kit, “the film examines the hidden assumption of cultural superiority behind education aid projects, which overtly aim to help children ‘escape’ to a ‘better life’ – despite mounting evidence of the environmental, social, and mental health costs of our own modern consumer lifestyles, from epidemic rates of childhood depression and substance abuse to pollution and climate change.” SCHOOLING THE WORLD calls for a “deeper dialogue” between cultures, suggesting that we have at least as much to learn as we have to teach, and that these ancient sustainable societies may harbor knowledge, which is vital to our own survival in the coming millennium.
