Virtual Orientation Page
Welcome to the Greece '97 Virtual Orientation site! Here we met each other and worked together over the internet to understand the issues of the International Conference on Environment and Society, December 8-12, 1997! In the future we will work over the internet to continue learning about sustainability issues and finding creative ways to make these issues relevant to young people across the world.
This program is a long distance learning initiative. The members of our team live in all different parts of Canada and the world. Some of us traveled to or lived in Greece, others have already met, while some of us will only ever meet through discussion forums, emails and live web chats. More and more members are joining the team. It is up to all of us to make this initiative exciting, fun and productive. We look forward to new members from all over the world, joining our team.
How does this work? Activities and learning modules are listed below. Your research and reports will be posted on the web at TG Magazine in Toronto, at http://www.tgmag.ca.
