HAY-2-WAY. Africa- A focus for ESDGC learning (Education for Sustainable Development and Global Citizenship)
This resource describes the education work that was part of the Two Towns One World project. It makes the case for an Africa focus as a significant theme in Education for Sustainable Development and global citizenship learning.
The Two Towns One World project had two main strands
Locally in the Hay-on-Wye area with the Gwernfed cluster of schools
Nationally in Wales through a series of workshops and conferences
The scope of the work was enhanced through partnership with other initiatives on the themes ‘Unpacking Africa’ and ‘Debating Development’. A conference in Llandrindod Wells in November 2013 brought the strands of work together and provided the main narrative of this publication.
The resource is full of photos, animations, useful narrative and project examples/guides.
