SIMA Classroom is the “Netflix of Global Education” offering a wealth of films and teaching resources for the next generation of global citizens. SIMA’s Virtual Student Film Club provides a monthly dose of impact cinema, discussion starters, quizzes, and more. Join students in over 30 countries watching two monthly film picks and attend a virtual exchange with experts and changemakers.
This month’s theme is “Food Waste,” featuring the film, A Thousand Suns. The film shares the story of the Gamo Highlands of the African Rift Valley and the unique worldview held by the people of the region. It is one of the most densely populated rural regions of Africa yet its people have been farming sustainably for 10,000 years. Accompanying the film the Food Waste Podcase and a virtual exchange featuring 2021 SIMA Student Award winner Iffany Zou, Inspire Citizens Co-founder Aaron Moniz, and Doona Guerin, the Co-Director of Global Youth Media.
