A Walk Around the World

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In January of this year, two-time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Paul Salopek began a seven-year walk around the world. Called "Out of Eden," the walk will retrace the path of human migration out of the Rift Valley of Africa, eastward through Asia, across the Bering Strait by boat, and down through the Americas to finish in Patagonia. He will be examining the great stories of our day – ethnic migrations, climate change, resource shortages, regional conflicts – as a walking global correspondent for National Geographic. The Pulitzer Center will be heading up the educational component of the walk, facilitating interaction between Salopek and your students along the way through e-mail Q and As, Skype talks, and other methods. We will share some exciting ways teachers have already begun to use the walk as an interactive learning tool and will show you how to get involved in this unique project. Come walk with Paul!
