LEARN // Social Alterations Google Earth Module (SAGE) – #GET Station

Welcome to the #GET Station, the 1st stop along the SAGE journey!

Here, we fly into Uzbekistan to gain insight into key #GET themes:

#Corruption | #EnvironmentalSecurity | #ChildLabour | #HumanRights

Part 1: You’ll learn why United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon calls the Aral Sea“one of the worst environmental disasters of the world.” (The United Nations)

Thanks to historic satellite imagery, we’ve created a ‘tour’ that will display changes in water volume over the last 40 years.

Part 2: You’ll learn why ‘back to school’ is code for ‘back to the cotton fields’ in Uzbekistan.

Like all SAGE stations, you’ll find photos, video, informational resources (below)

and learning activities, here.
