Dhaka to Dundee

Dhaka to Dundee

WHEN: March 11th 2021. 4.00pm - 5.30pm.

WHERE: Online - register via Eventbrite.

Learning from the past, acting for the future. This session explores how looking to the past can help shape a more positive future.

Dundee is known for the jute industry which depended on India and Bangladesh for its raw materials. We'll explore these historical links and issues of interdependence and social justice. How do the living and working conditions for people in Victorian Dundee compare to those in India and Bangladesh today?

To coincide with this session, we'll be relaunching our Dhaka to Dundee resource which is already packed full of practical activities but will include additional connections to the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs or Global Goals). We'll also be drawing links between Fashion Revolution Week coming up in April.

Whilst the context for the resource and the session is Dundee and the local area, the methodologies and activities are relevant to all educators and can be adapted to all areas of Scotland.
