Getting the Picture

To foster a deeper understanding of our changing climate, Earth Vision Institute has developed educational tools that combine science, art and adventure.

Getting The Picture: Our Changing Climate is an innovative FREE online multimedia tool for climate science education. Acclaimed photographer James Balog and his team bring you the latest in climate science education, featuring unique archives of media, film, photography and first-hand accounts of our changing climate.  

  • Esteemed educators, researchers and photographers from around the world join together to create Getting The Picture with easy to use, chapter-by-chapter lessons combining art, science and adventure.
  • Compelling animations, time-lapse and science videos, photographs, field expedition stories and special clips from the Academy Award nominated® and Emmy® award-winning documentary film Chasing Ice are just a few of the highlights!
