Session 6: Grounding and Reconnecting with Culture (13 April)

Reconnecting education with nature, culture and our story

Aims and objectives of the module:

  • Reflecting and telling our own story of how we got where we are now;
  • Connecting to the cultural heritage that we inherited and reconstructing an awareness of the natural heritage that was bestowed to our community.

This session is about history: the stories that we’ve been told and the stories we tell about ourselves. We will explore the stories of our communities, embedded in our cultural heritage – cultural practices that kept us connected and that protected our environment. The aim of this session is to share and explore our personal experiences and cultivate a deeper awareness of the cultural context and the the natural environment that we are part of in our local communities.

Facilitated by Mugove Nyika of ReSCOPE in Zambia.

Over the last three decades he has contributed as a key player in SCOPE/ReSCOPE to the development of the Integrated Land-Use Design (ILUD) process as a tool for inclusive and participatory whole school land design and community engagement
