Join CMA for a night with Howard Blumenthal, creator and producer of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? From traveling the world with Carmen on PBS to now traveling and filming with real kids for his latest project, Kids on Earth, Blumenthal’s work has always been focused on global citizenship and connecting cultures. 
 “We are growing the world’s first generation of healthy, literate and globally connected kids. A mobile device is an ideal tool for curious children and teenagers to pursue a personalized learning path to global citizenship. Think beyond school, beyond traditional media. The Internet is the fastest-growing educational institution the world has ever known,” says Blumenthal.

Kids on Earth is a global exploration of curiosity as a primary means of learning, sometimes enabled by traditional education, more often motivated by access to the world via real life, friendship, family, and the internet.

If you’re looking to learn more about the global state of children right now as well as where the future is headed, you won’t want to miss this event!
