The Offer: Cultural Learning in an Earth Crisis
Your invitation to join a virtual space for The CDE Community
Cultural Learning in an Earth Crisis: emergency shifts for young and future people
Wednesday 15 April 2020, 11-12.30pm
How can Culture respond effectively to the Planetary Emergency to ensure agency, wellbeing and justice for today’s young people and for future generations?
Agency – how can young people be empowered to imagine and create systemic change?
Wellbeing – how can Cultural Learning change the system to nurture wellbeing more than wealth?
Justice – how can this practice be as ethical and inclusive as possible?
A range of practitioners will describe how their work contributes to this emergency response, invited by Deborah Curtis (House of Fairy Tales) Bridget McKenzie (Climate Museum UK). All those joining will then be invited to share ideas to co-create a resource of inspirational examples and potential projects.
