Owls Class and children from Stanley Primary School in Gweru, Zimbabwe have been working together to share ideas. We are part of a cluster of Craven schools that have linked with Gweru schools. The project is supported by the British Council and the Craven Development Education Centre. Teachers from the schools involved meet regularly and share their classes work online for each other to see.
We have, so far, discussed local issues that have been made worse by climate change and affected our communities. Kildwick children chose to explore flooding and suggested solutions. Gweru pupils shared their thoughts about cyclones that damaged their homes and livelihoods. Next, we will work collaboratively to find ways to work towards zero waste and responsible consumption.
