Using multimedia storytelling tools, Carnegie Corporation of New York shares the work of its grantees in order to shed light on critical public issues and foster online communications. Recent projects include:
Relations between the United States and Russia are once again in the spotlight, with challenges ranging from the Syrian conflict to the Snowden affair. In response to the cancellation of the planned September 2013 summit between presidents Obama and Putin, Carnegie Corporation invited nearly 30 leading experts on U.S.–Russia relations to discuss why the relationship matters—and what can be done to fix it. Our new website, Perspectives on Peace and Security: Rebuilding the U.S.–Russia Relationship, lets you explore participants’ answers to these questions and add your own opinion.
Created in partnership with the Atomic Heritage Foundation, Perspectives on Peace and Security: The Manhattan Project tells the dramatic story of the atomic bomb, from the discovery of natural radiation to the destruction of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The Manhattan Project was one of the most significant and secretive undertakings of the 20th century, with clandestine operations scattered across the country—quite a few in New York City, where it employed as many as 5,000 workers. More than 70 years later, it remains a mysterious and compelling tale. On our site, you can explore an interactive map that uncovers the bomb’s hidden past, browse an illustrated timeline and brief history, and more.
Every July 4th, Carnegie Corporation salutes the legacy of immigrant Andrew Carnegie and the millions of immigrants who continue to make our nation vibrant. On our Great Immigrants: The Pride of America website, you can discover an inspiring group of naturalized citizens who have contributed to the strength of American democracy and the vitality of our national life—and tell us about a great immigrant you know.
American education today is full of dramatic changes, with increasing demands on teachers and students. Yet despite these daunting challenges, our country is rich in excellent teachers. Picture This! Great Teaching shines a light on the important, inspiring work they do. Through this photo-sharing website, Carnegie Corporation and dozens of partner organizations celebrate talented teachers everywhere.
