Week Three :: July 6–12

A Planet in Balance: A Week in Partnership with National Geographic

In response to a rapidly changing planet, National Geographic is leveraging its legacy of exploration, innovation and vibrant storytelling to further solutions. From funding cutting-edge technologies to leading advancements in science communication, we’ll uncover how National Geographic is using 21st-century tools to shape the future of exploration and to address the greatest challenge our world has ever faced.

  • The week opens with a look at the status of the planet, and how the most advanced conservation technology is being deployed to show how nature and culture are changing in real time.
  • We study how exploration and the communication of science work in tandem to protect the environment so that all species have a shot at survival.
  • Next, we travel to Earth’s last wild places to learn about the efforts to protect and restore those habitats before it’s too late.
  • We examine life in the planet’s extreme environments, and seek clues offered there for surviving the impact of the changes we are facing.
  • Finally, we explore our own choices and discover how we can reduce our human footprint.

 Interfaith Lecture Theme :: What Archaeology Tells Us about Biblical Times

Christians and all peoples of the world are drawn to the Biblical sites in Israel, tracking the historical Jesus. These sites are not only vibrant centers of pilgrimage and faith, but monuments of archeological significance as well. Through their recent work in Israel, which they titled “The Search for the Real Jesus,” National Geographic, for example, has discovered a way to help us see that the scientific and the spiritual can and do coexist.
