Whilst Grant was Graphic Recording a school workshop on recycling, organised by Spring Greens Fair, he overheard one pupil saying that pollution wasn’t fair on the environment.
This got him questioning children’s inate understanding of fairness.
What’s ‘fair’ and not ‘fair’ could seem like a straightforward judgement based on learning but children differentiate between the two from such an early age that it might be an inherent skill. If this is so, perhaps the views of our younger World citizens should be more widely shared.
If your class knows what’s fair, let’s do some serious listening, together. Call us in.
If we ‘sweep things under the carpet’ we don’t see them. We can ‘sweep’ dust, hard-to-handle news, crime, data, pollution and in Victorian London, whole rivers out of site.
But … as out-of-site becomes out-of-mind, we forget, and in doing so, problems can build up to a massive size – bigger than giant fatbergs in water drains.
As World of Water campaign to keep problems which affect water and waterlife from being buried, every School Talkabout brings to the surface some shareable mind opening issues needing World attention.
Share your class thoughts with us and we’ll share our understandings. Together we’ll clean up the environment for all.
