Good week to all, readers.
The idea is simple and always the same, a couple of minutes of planetary reality…
I always said it was important to widen our horizons when it comes to the insertion of environmental issues in school. Honestly, one is accustomed to highlight the bad things, what one needs to change, and in general, the positive changes and efforts are left in a secondary plane. The excellent work of graduate Daniela Chaya (Public Service Regulating Entity – Education Area) and her team, is worthy of being repeated in any part of the world.
Her project “Stories of the Water” is about taking awareness to every point of the country, to rural and public schools, through information given to the students –and hence to the entire community, as students go to their homes and talk with their parents– and then gather up testimonies of the kids speaking and sharing their experiences on how they protect their water… these testimonies are very moving. If you have a couple of minutes, check out the project which combines education & the care taking of water resource.
I´ve been very recurrent in several deliveries of this newsletter on sharing the online courses given by United Foundation (Fundación Unida) through ecoportal.net and its Sustainable Human Development Management Program, which looks forward to forming actors committed with the change in the paradigm and the construction of a united society within diversity. The courses are:
- Latin American Sociocultural Anthropology
- Human Ecology and Environment
- Clean and Renewable Energies
- Civilian Society, NGO’s and Local Development
- Sustainable Tourism
The reason I repeat them today is because, for those interested, the courses begin this Wednesday 18th. Here you have a brief but tempting introduction to the courses.
This for of education is simply great. To study from the distance, in an integrated manner.
Till next week, good vibes!
