What is a Virtual Viewing Party?
A virtual viewing party is a shared viewing experience of the brand new Discovery Education video Celebrate With DE: Earth Day which explores the history of Earth Day, discusses the positive impact of environmental activism, and reveals the various ways in which countries across the world raise public awareness about environmental issues.
Thousands of classrooms will simultaneously access this video and share their thoughts and reflections around the human impact on the environment and the best way to promote environmentalism in local communities. If this is your first virtual viewing party read our FAQs for additional information.
