Learning: Equity and Possibility

Pedagogy

Since 2020, the online classroom has been an essential part of life for school-age children during the pandemic. Throughout the globe, having little- if any- access to the internet has pushed back major sustainable educational goals set by the UN, but maybe this can teach us all something about what a “school” is and can be.

Earth Day 2022 – On Pirates, Snakes and Snails

Plastic Pirates

Earth Day 2022. We are again on the prowl to restore the planet – the last Plastic Pirates activity of the season took a courageous crew into the wild where we loot 54 kg of waste from a plot which is supposedly owned by a transnational real estate tycoon, while fighting off the rain. Rain is what snails love, so they turn into a major attraction as well as a young grass snake which we discover in a large plastic tarp.
