Impact Narrative

Adrienne’s OVER proposal:

“I work as a facilitator for the Enviroschools programme in the Waikato region of New Zealand. Together, I am part of a team of 6 facilitators working with about 150 schools. We would be able to share your book with the schools that we work with and at the teacher workshops we run for professional development.

This year our theme is “Global Issues – Local Realities” which purpose is to empower students to participate in decision making and action towards a more sustainable community both locally and further afield. Through this process they will develop knowledge and understanding of the interdependence of human society and natural ecosystems that nourish them. Students will be encouraged to develop an appreciation of the diversity of people and cultures, affirmation of social justice and human rights as well as building peace and actions for a sustainable future. The photos in your book are potent starters for conversation and debate around issues effecting the planet and our collective future. Children respond strongly to such concrete images, and it is our job and the job of teachers to balance that with examples of communities that are affecting change for the better. The theme “Global Issues- Local Realities” is an opportunity to promote positive values, for students to take responsibility for their actions and see themselves as global citizens who can contribute to a more peaceful, just and sustainable world. The Enviroschools pedagogy implicates action taking, often happening through the learning process or toward the end of the year. Schools are also invited and encouraged to take part in large end of year celebration where students share learning and action with others from around the region. I am positive that your book will be be put to very good use!”
