Coming up next in our series of international education programs is a four part program on volcanoes and ecology for middle and secondary schools. Sponsored by the United States Department of Education, the Satellite Education Resource Consortium, the Weather Channel, South Carolina Educational Television and our strategic Internet video broadcast partner, Microcast.net, OPEN offers a four-part satellite and Internet video series to be aired each week in February of 2000. The program for this electronic field trip teaches how humans and wildlife have co-existed for thousands of years in one of the most active earthquake and volcanoe sites in the world. Learn about volcanoes through history, our dynamic planet and its environment, and travel with our researchers and program hosts to the summit of Mt. Novarupta, the largest and most voluminous volcanic eruption of the century. Registration forms and further information for this program series will be posted for teachers and schools in November 1999 on the OPEN Website. Our international Webcast and U.S. television satellite feeds and times will also soon be listed. The curriculum for this program will be posted on the OPEN Website the first week in January 2000.
KINGS COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY CHARLES J. HYNES AND OPEN PRESENT
YOUTH AND VIOLENCE SYMPOSIUM
Kings County District Attorney Charles J. Hynes and OPEN (One Planet Education Network) announce a multi-disciplinary symposium entitled "Youth and Violence: The Search for Answers" to be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The symposium will be held at the Klitgord Auditorium of New York City Technical College, 285 Jay Street, downtown Brooklyn and will be Webcast nationwide through the OPEN Website www.oneplaneteducation.com. The Kings County District Attorneys Office and OPEN, an international organization specializing in distance learning programming, co-developed the program to address various aspects of a problem that has become all too familiar in recent days. OPEN delivers high quality educational programming and technology support services to schools worldwide. As part of its ongoing mission, OPEN offers this symposium as the first of a continuing series of professional development series."We must address the incidents of youth violence before they occur. We can’t afford to wait until our children show up in courtrooms or, worse, in hospitals and morgues as victims, " District Atorney Hynes said. "Through this symposium we hope to address factors contributing to youth violence and the steps we can take to prevent it."Beginning with a special pre-taped welcome and remarks by Janet Reno, Attorney General of the United States, introductory remarks by District Attorney Hynes and a keynote address by Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy, the conference will feature compelling videos and panel discussions by the foremost authorities in many fields. Medical and psychological experts, law enforcement officials, educators, former gang members, clergy and other specialists will all participate. Panelists will define the problem of youth violence, present strategies for prevention and intervention, discuss the effects of guns and the media on violence, including addiction and the warning signs. The events moderators will be WNBC anchor Maurice DuBois and News 12 Long Islands anchor Judy Martin. The symposium is being co-sponsored by the Human Services Department of New York City Technical College, Bell Atlantic, the Keyspan Energy Company, Microcast, the John A. Reisenbach Foundation, and the Brooklyn AIDS Task Force. A streaming video Webcast of the conference will be available.
