Geographic Inspiration and Education

"I am a citizen of the most beautiful nation on earth. A nation whose laws are harsh yet simple, a nation that never cheats, which is immense and without borders, where life is lived in the present. In this limitless nation, this nation of wind, light, and peace, there is no other ruler besides the sea." - Bernard Moitessier
Beautiful Nation

The Beautiful Nation Project

The Beautiful Nation Project tracks the voyage of Makulu, a 43 foot sailing vessel, on an around-the-world adventure! Working in partnership with leading geography education nonprofit Reach the World, and world-class science education nonprofit Agastya, Beautiful Nation is geared up to share content and communicate with over one million students (ages 6-18) per year. Special guest educators, scientists and artists will join together for this incredible journey to share information on the effects of marine debris following best practices identified by the Hewlett Packard Catalyst Initiative for Innovations in Education.

By combining 21st Century tools and the timeless art of storytelling, you can join the five daring crew as they navigate the high seas! Students and members of the Beautiful Nation social network will be able to engage in real-time messaging and videoconferencing with the crew throughout the journey, as well as make suggestions for topics to investigate along the route.

Join the adventure!
