To prepare for this virtual classroom experience, log on to CAMPUS, the NFB’s online streaming service for schools (or check out NFB.ca), and get inspired by our online playlist of related films, including Toxic Trespass, Crapshoot: The Gamble with Our Wastes and Waterlife. Next, have students discuss the films, drawing on the resources provided as the interdisciplinary guide Films for change, and prepare questions for David and Adam, submitting them to us via e-mail by November 8.  A select number of students will be chosen to ask their questions directly to David and Adam in front of their peers across Canada.
