Easter Island: The Collapse of a Society

"This video was created by the AS IFS group of the International School of Tainjin to Illustrate what can happen when a society overuses its' resource's. Please use this video to educate others and get animated and join the AS IFS." animatedstudents@gmail.com
 I saw these students present their videos at the Global Issues Network conference in Bangkok on March 20. Please take the time to watch this video. It is very powerful!

  1. Margherite,

    I was also at this AS IFS session and I was really impressed by how a few students have been able to form a group of like minded people and cooperatively create powerful messages using quite simple animation technology. This is what Clay Shirkey wrote about in his book, Here Comes Everybody: The Power of Organizing Without Organizations. No longer are the masses held captive to the dictates and controls of the elites -- be they in religious, political, educational or other kinds of organizations. Think of what Galileo would have done with today's organizing and communicating technology!
