Through considering issues associated with land, students are encourages to examine the issues of justice, equality and sustainable development, as well as to explore their own rights and responsibilities. Comparisons between South Africa and Scotland show the links between people’s lives locally and globally, and reveal how people face similar issues and struggles the world over.
The materials (book+CD Rom) will encourage young people to appreciate conflicts of interest, make informed judgements, develop a sense of stewardship for the environment, and understand the links between their lives and of others throughout the world. The CD has 10 interactive activities as well as case studies and further examples which complement and extend the work in the teacher’s pack.
Even though examples from South Africa and Scotland are used, it would be easy to substitute for local areas as well.
