Teaching for the Future, with Charles Dick-Hutchinson


The world is changing fast, and children leaving schools today are now faced with challenges on a global scale. Theewaterskloof Municipality has outlined a vision for a sustainable future in the Overberg, and that vision now needs to be brought to the schools.

One question is raised though, addressed to everyone who is a part of that future. How do you teach sustainability? More specifically, if you had one lesson to explain the global context and the action that needs to be taken, what would you include?

This Saturday at 15:00, Charles Dick-Hutchinson will be facilitating an ‘open space’ workshop around this question. The event is open to everyone who wants to be a part of the future of the municipality, young and old alike.

With experience in group facilitation and transformative education, Charles came to South Africa to run a program with Megan de Beyer aimed at raising ecological awareness and fostering creative leadership with teenagers from Emil Weder in Genadendal. Some members of the Eco-Crew from this program will be supervising different parts of the festival. Don’t hesitate to ask them about their ideas of sustainability!
