In partnership with HI USA, It's a Shared World explores Walt Disney's lifelong commitment to environmental education, international travel and intercultural understanding. From driving an ambulance in Europe during WWI to pioneering nature documentaries, Walt Disney wanted to make a difference on a global scale. Paired with a guided gallery tour, students transition into an outdoor classroom setting for a participatory tour and naturalist-led activities focusing on their own impact on the planet and its many inhabitants. HI USA's Outdoor Hostel Adventure program is aligned with SFUSD's Science Enrichment Pathways Program and has been providing experiential education in the SF Bay Area for over 30 years.

 

Registration for the 2019–2020 academic year is now open. Please email schoolexperience@wdfmuseum.org if you have any questions.
