Rwanda Dreaming: education edition
Home-grown strategies for human wellbeing
Twenty years after the 1994 genocide, Rwandans are creatively shaping a country and society that is uniquely their own.
Using beautifully presented data, stories and photography, Rwanda Dreaming looks at the nuts and bolts of re-building human wellbeing after conflict. It explores Rwanda’s solutions in justice, health, education, poverty, social cohesion and the environment.
This Education Edition includes a wide range of individual and group student activities. It’s aimed at senior secondary students and has been written to fit well with the Australian Year 10 Geography curriculum (Human Wellbeing unit). It includes regional comparisons with Australia, especially indigenous Australia, and post-genocide Cambodia.
In stable societies, human wellbeing can be a fuzzy concept. By using the case study of a country forced to re-build from scratch, Rwanda Dreaming shows how dynamic the elements of human wellbeing can be in people’s lives. This young, engaged and forward-looking population will encourage students to think creatively about their own human environments and the possibilities for equitable and sustainable development on our shared planet.
Compatibility: works beautifully in iBooks on Mac desktops and laptops. In fact, that’s my preferred way to work with Rwanda Dreaming.
