Howard Blumenthal created and produced the Peabody Award winning series ‘Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?’ – teaching a generation about world cultures. Now he’s travelling to Africa, Asia, Europe, and all over the world, providing a platform for authentic first-person storytelling by children and teenagers. Along the way, ‘Kids on Earth’ is challenging basic assumptions about story forms, friendship, international law, production, global citizenship, personalised learning, and a connected society that protects kids while making the best of every new technology. This is not just international—it’s global. And it’s fun. Howard will be interviewed by industry veteran Julian Scott.
