Mirrors, windows and sliding glass doors! Design the learning environment in an anti-bias manner

Children need materials that act like “mirrors, windows and sliding glass doors” (Rubine Sims Bishop): mirrors in which they can find themselves and the worlds they live in; Windows that allow you to see the diversity of the world; Sliding doors that allow insights into the previously unknown and the change between different worlds. This is particularly important for children who are socially marginalized and are still underrepresented or stereotyped in materials.
In the workshop you will receive a short introduction to the approach of prejudice-conscious education and upbringing© as well as insight into the basic principles of the discrimination-sensitive design of learning environments. The focus of the workshop is on children's books. Exchange rounds enable self- and practical reflection.

Another reference to a Stuttgart specialty:
Thematic afternoon, this time about Nicaragua
1979 revolution in Nicaragua - back then the beginning of a dream for many leftists and today?
A dream of revolution, documentary, 95 minutes, written and directed by Petra Hoffmann

When the revolution triumphed in Nicaragua almost 45 years ago, a dream began. A young generation takes over the government in a country of great utopia. From West Germany alone, 15.000 “Brigadists” are coming to rebuild the country that has been bled dry: Liberals, Greens, trade unionists, social democrats, leftists and church representatives harvest coffee and cotton, build schools, kindergartens and hospital wards. No movement has mobilized so many people. What happened to the wishes and dreams of revolutionaries and their supporters?
Petra Hoffmann, who will be available for the interview, was unable to travel to Nicaragua to film due to the current political situation, the Ortega dictatorship.
For her film, she uses historical film clips, statements from those involved in the trial, but also statements from former comrades in arms from Europe with whom she met in Costa Rica on the border with Nicaragua.

ESD network meeting – talk to each other and learn from each other

How can we enable people to act sustainably? What experiences do educational actors from a wide variety of subject and action contexts have when teaching ESD? Are there insights, messages or examples that are transferable from which we can learn from each other?

The world is becoming more and more complicated and confusing. In order to develop an understanding of social, ecological and economic connections, a variety of different perspectives are required. Education for sustainable development aims to show connections and effects using a variety of perspectives and make them tangible.

With short impulses and exchanges, we want to jointly explore the added value of education for sustainable development across thematic boundaries, make it tangible and mutually benefit from our experiences.

Petit Pays – Small Country | Theater La Lune Stuttgart

Memories of a childhood stolen by war in paradise by Gaël Faye, in German and French.

“They steal mangoes from the neighboring garden and jump naked from the 10-meter tower. They ponder the name of their gang, but not politics. And because they have French passports, they hardly notice that a rift has long been spreading through the country. In “Petit Pays – Small Country”, a paradisiacal childhood is gradually eaten up by the civil war in Burundi in the 90s. In the stage adaptation of France-based rapper Gaël Faye's debut novel, the eternal and illusory goal of his dreams comes to life: his homeland of Burundi.

If you want to have the mangues in the outdoor garden and enjoy all the tours in the pool. Ils discussent des noms pour leur gang, mais pas la politique. Et comme ils ont des passports français, ils n'aperçoivent pas qu'il ya une rupture qui beginning a separer leur pays, qu'ils sont menacés par une guerre civile. Mais… ce sont des élèves…
Gaël Faye, rappeur d'origine de Burundi, évoque dans son début troublant ""Petit Pays"" le but illusoire et infini de ses rêves: son pays d'origine Burundi."
