Learning from the past. Acting for the future. (Apr)

D to D repeat

WHEN: April 29th 2021. 4.00pm - 5.30pm.

WHERE: Online - register via Eventbrite.

In this session we'll explore how looking to the past can help create a more positive future and consider how a place can be shaped by its past.

To coincide, 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 which runs from April 19th-25th.

We'll be joined by Brian Kelly from Dundee Heritage Trust as we think about how much can be gained from looking to the past, especially in terms of developing numeracy, literacy and Global Citizenship with learners.

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?

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.
