Sustainability as Pedagogy? Towards tertiary curricula in and of Africa
What is "the Africa we want"? How could a critical transdisciplinary study of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the African Union's Agenda 2063 prepare African university students to bring that Africa into being? This site, produced by Environmental Humanities South at the University of Cape Town, addresses approaches and pedagogies and curates the contributions of African thought leaders, civil society, activists and academics into an experimental curriculum.
A collaboration of EHS at the University of Cape Town (South Africa) with thought leaders from the African continent.
Tracking the traces of environmental change, exploring emergent ecologies. The Seed Box is an interdisciplinary and international Environmental Humanities research program. Focused on research, education, and artistic practices that address pressing environmental challenges, this program will bring together practitioners from different fields and create an interface between academia and other parts of society.
Change takes work. Information makes it easier. Stories make it fun. Water Stories is a website that shares different stories of Cape Town’s water, designed to communicate the work of those who are endeavouring to restore life and health to oceans, rivers, aquifers, streams and vleis (note to non-Saffers: “vleis” is South Africanese for wetlands and lakes the singular is vlei). Highlighting the work of citizens, community organisations and scientists involved in water research and cleanups, Water Stories dives in to Cape Town’s water flows from a central map from where readers can find information and stories about Cape Town’s water spaces.
