The PACE films give an entirely different and much more positive view of Africa than much media coverage. These multimedia DVDs for schools feature inspiring projects in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Zambia and show how people all over the world are facing up to and solving environmental challenges. Each lesson or set of lessons is based around a project, and ends by drawing out the relevance to a parallel environmental issue in the UK.

“They are fantastic. They will be a valuable resource for my future teaching, which will bring me a step further in educating children about the world around us and giving them an awareness of environmental and conservation issues.”
Trainee UK Teacher
“I would recommend this DVD to any geography teacher as it creates a very positive outlook that combines many aspects of development such as population and resources, urban issues, sustainability and local action.”
Garry Atterton in Teaching Geography magazine
