Topic | CLIMATE CHANGE | CHASING ICE FILM SCREENING

Registration | amcorner@uni-corvinus.hu |
REQUIRED


Join us on June 17, at 17:00, to identify 1+7 (or more!) reasons why climate change is an important item on the agenda of most countries and why it needs to be part of the discourse within the general public. We will do this by watching the movie Chasing Ice, and highlighting various excerpts from the movie in order to have a more in-depth understanding of the matters it deals with.

Chasing Ice tells the story of our own planet and the effects climate change has on it. Through the use of time-lapse photography the film is able to provide a vivid evidence of how our environment is changing. The film, which has also been screened at the United Nations and the White House, tells the story of a man who sets out to explore Iceland and capture the environmental changes that are more relevant than ever.

We invite you to share your own thoughts on this issue and tell us what you think could be done to have more effective discussions and tools dealing with it.

Present program is dedicated to WORLD ENVIRONMENT DAY, celebrated on June 5th worldwide.

Music is the international language, and every culture every people uses music to share its story. Folk music, in particular, unites us not only across cultures, but it also tells us something about our own culture --- how people think, interact and live in the village or the city, in the new world or the old. And the only thing better than listening to music is making music.

Photo :: Richárd Kalocsai

Join us as we share American cultural heritage by singing American folk songs together. It’s a fun way to learn the language and understand the culture. We’ll have music available, but if you have a song you’d like to sing or learn – bring it and we’ll sing it together. If you play an instrument, bring that too, and we’ll enjoy the accompaniment.

ENGLISH FOR JOURNALISTS

The Regional English Language Office for Central and Southeastern Europe, based at U.S. Embassy, Budapest, is organizing a year-long 'English for Journalism' Course Development project, starting July, 2014.

The first segment of the project will be the upcoming July 14-24 Summer Institute in Budapest for content developers from Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Hungary, Macedonia, Kosovo, Latvia , Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, and Ukraine. The Summer Institute will be facilitated by RELO Budapest's English Language Specialist Dr. Maggie Sokolik of UC Berkley, with support from Victor Morales, Chief of the Learning English Branch of the Voice of America. During this program, participating educators from the region will practice the English for Specific Purposes course development process, meet practicing journalists and discuss current issues in the field, interact with educational technologies, and actually begin the development of the blended media English for Journalists course.

After the Summer Institute to be held at the American Corner Budapest, course developers will continue participating in the development of the course curriculum—with virtual support from Dr. Sokolik—during the Autumn 2014 semester; will attend a follow up conference in Budapest in January 2015, and will also participate in the implementation of the developed course during the Spring 2015 semester.
