THE EDMONTON LEARNER CENTRE is a non-profit society dedicated to raising awareness about global issues and facilitating action toward a more just global order.
To this end the CENTRE provides films, slides tapes, information, referrals, and programming on other counties and cultures.
Its facilities include a projection room and lending library with study space. A monthly newsletter keeps people informed about new resources and activities and includes a calendar of coming events.
Of special interest is the "Curriculm Index" produced by the CENTRE. The index is a teacher's guide to audio visual resources on global issues which catalogues over 30 films and 40 slide tapees and offers referrals to other distributors. Latin America, Canadian Native People, Famrin, Children,
Canada as a Multicultural Society, Bottle Babies, and Third World Treade Uniins are some of the topics covered.
The CENTRE also provides a film guide that gives detailed summaries of the films it offers. As well, it publishes Connections, a bi-montly magazine of news and development information on Third World and global issues.
Memberships to the CENTRE are available and provide discount rates for borrowed resources.
This organization no longer exists.
