Creating environmental awareness through art

This resource provides a unique opportunity to engage students in discussions about our planet's fragility and the need to protect it, all while creating a stunning visual representation of Europe. 

Anyone who wants to draw a map of the world quickly encounters difficulties: The surface of our spherical planet can’t be represented on a flat plane without distortion. It wasn’t until December 1968, when the astronauts of ‘Apollo 8’ - the second manned space flight of the American Apollo program, and the first manned flight to the moon - took the first photograph of our planet, that people were able to see the Earth as it really looks from space. The photograph shows a gray, pockmarked surface in the foreground (the inhospitable cratered landscape of the moon) and, floating above it in the black depths of space, a blue-white glowing sphere - our Earth. This first photo of the Blue Planet was an historical moment when people saw the „rising Earth“ with their own eyes for the first time, and became aware of its fragility. The photo of our radiant yet fragile-looking Blue Planet became the symbol of the newly emerging environmental movement. Since then we’ve taken countless photographs of the Earth from space, and we’ve rendered one of those photographs, in which Europe is clearly visible, into a poster composed of 24 coloring-in sheets.
