Environmental Education by Use of Entertainment
(Updated on August 23, 2013)
Sony delivers environmental messages through its entertainment media, especially in films. On May 31st, 2013, the Sony Pictures Entertainment film "After Earth" will be released in theatres in United States and other selected countries. Inspired by this film, Dr. Joe Levine, a biologist and widely-known science educator in the United States, created a website that provide the latest information and lesson plans for schoolteachers about human impact on the Earth, on which the film's theme is founded. In the website, environmental issues such as climate change and biodiversity are visualized by abundant animations and explained in plain language. The website will be a good means to help engage young students and to educate them about the science behind environmental issues.
