CMG Action Grantee Hurricane Island Foundation has released their second video of their three part video campaign, Off-shore, Off-line, Off-the-grid. The campaign series encourages students, teachers, and community members to visit and experience Hurricane Island. This second film, Off-shore, geared toward educators, follows the learning experience of a student in the classroom versus on Hurricane Island - showcasing the benefits of experiencing a lesson versus listening to one. It has a call-to-action for teachers to take their classroom to Hurricane Island, suggesting the benefits of learning outside of the classroom can brighten and inspire lesson plans.
As part of CMG's 2015 Catalyst Workshops, Hurricane Island 's Director Sam Hallowell worked with independent filmmakers Jay Sia and Rita Chengying to develop a 3-part campaign & video concept. Following the workshops, CMG awarded the Hurricane Island Foundation an Action Grant to continue production on this series of videos to raise awareness about Hurricane Island and all the opportunities that take place there.
