Kids eating burgers in Los Angeles. Surfers in Australia. Indians in the Amazon. What in the world do they have in common?

Spaceship Earth is a unique program demonstrating the amazing interdependence of human, natural, and technological systems. Hosted entirely by young people, this unusual video travels the world examining three of today's most critical environmental issues: deforestation, global warming, and ozone depletion. These abstract concepts are made immediate and personally relevant. With increased understanding and awareness, viewers are challenged to "get involved and make a difference."

Spaceship Earth features international rock star Sting, an articulate spokesman for the rainforests. The program is an excellent discussion starter, fast-paced, factual, and entertaining.
