Abstract:  This audio-visual package, consisting of cassettes, filmstrips and teachers' guide, has been produced for use by grade 8 classes in the Ontario Geography curriculum but may be used also in grades 6 through 10 and even in adult groups in introductory sessions. The kit attempts to deal with questions such as how we in Canada are related to people living in other parts of the globe and what can be done to solve the problems facing the world today.

The presentation was developed by a group of volunteers at the Global Center and is divided into two parts: "What is the Third World?" and "Where are We Now?" The first part is historical and traces the era of colonialism and its impact on indigenous peoples. The second part continues with an analysis of present day links among third world and industrialized nations. Particular attention is given to international aid and trade systems. As well as looking at problems, positive alternatives are also considered. Two further presentations are also in the planning stage. They will be available in September of this year and are entitled "An Alternative Solution to Underdevelopment." Part 1 focuses on food, water and housing, and Part II on health and education.
