The municipal government is looking to sponsor a major art installation for Toronto’s [or local city of choice] upcoming Nuit Blanche, a free, 12-hour, city-wide art exhibit featuring hundreds of artists from around the world. With the intent of inspiring understanding between cultural and linguistic communities, the city is asking for proposals for an interactive art installation that combines a celebration from one of the local cultures (e.g. Valentine’s Day in Canada) with elements from a similar or different celebration from one or two other cultures (e.g. New Year’s Eve in Thailand).
As informed citizens of your country, you have been asked by ___X____ university or college to help plan a unique and ground-breaking 12-week intensive study abroad course for 2nd or 3rd year environmental biology students. This course is inspired (in part) by the writings and knowledge of environmental biologist Robin Wall Kimmerer. The course you develop will have students visit three countries outside of Canada to learn from various sources about the local climate, biology and environmental practices. As this program is still in its planning stages, it is important that your course attracts a good number of students so that the program can continue. Your work will be presented and discussed at a curriculum developers meeting and, if successful, could lead to a collaboration with Wall Kimmerer.
