In concurrence with the new 12-hour television event, Mankind The Story of All of Us, HISTORY invited educators & young people from across the globe to join them for the live webcast, MANKIND CONNECTED: A Global Teach-In. The live online event took place on Thursday, November 8th, and featured a panel of historians, special guests, and students from around the world, to explore UNESCO World Heritage sites & discuss a shared history between all humans. The main broadcast took place in Washington, D.C’s interactive museum, the Newseum, and featured numerous videos & live remote presentations, to showcase an insider’s look into a variety of UNESCO locations.
Work with CEG & HISTORY to advise technical direction, coordinate schedules, supervise the main broadcasting studio’s set design & build, and oversee the production of both remote locations in Vina del Mar, Chile & Liberty, Missouri.
Scope of Responsibilities
