This website offers free, open ecomedia literacy resources for educators.

Ecomedia literacy explores the ecological footprint and mindprint of media. The aim is to educate about the relationship between media and the environment, both in terms of the media system’s material impacts on ecosystems, and how media affects how we perceive and act upon the environment.
